Could the Texans Move on From Running Back Lamar Miller?

The Texans may decide to move on from running back Lamar Miller this offseason according to Sarah Barshop of ESPN.

Miller turns 27 years old in April and posted a career worst 3.7 yards-per-carry after fading down the stretch in 2016. Owed over $14 million over the next two years, the Texans could save $5.75 million if they cut him after June 1. Even if Miller does return the team could transition him to more of a passing-back role.

At time veteran Alfred Blue outplayed him in 2017 and rookie D’Onta Foreman was pushing him for the starting job before landing on injured reserve with a torn Achilles tendon. The talented but erratic Foreman would be the most likely replacement if the Texans choose not to draft another back provided he makes a full recovery.
