Texans Add RB Brown to Stable

The Houston Texans signed unrestricted free agent running back Chris Brown to a two-year contract on Thursday. Brown, formerly of the Tennessee Titans, brings experience and a solid, straight up run game that has compiled 2,757 yards and 16 TDs in five seasons with Tennessee.

Texans HC Gary Kubiak said Brown is an ideal fit for the Alex Gibbs’ Zone Blocking System, which will feature RBs Ahman Green, Chris Brown, Chris Taylor and Darius Walker in 2008. Brown told the Houston Chronicle on the Texans’ ZBS on Thursday, “Gibbs, he’s a guru. He started this whole zone blocking scheme, and that’s what I really love to run. That’s what I ran in college and then ran a little bit in Tennessee, and that’s what I’m best at.”

If the Texans are able to keep Green and Brown healthy they’ll be able to open up Kubiak’s passing game and play action passes anchored by a great run game in 2008. Brown told the Chronicle on the Texans, “They’ve got all the pieces to the puzzle and just need to put them all together.” Brown’s right, and the Texans very well could be on the move towards greatness in 2008.
