The Houston Texans released RB Andre Brown on Monday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: Brown, who was thought to be the clear backup to Arian Foster, apparently wasn't thought much of by the Texans' new coaching staff which released the veteran back two days after not playing him in the preseason opener. As to who is the Texans' No. 2 RB, take your pick between Jonathan Grimes and sixth-round rookie draft pick Alfred Blue. It won't be Dennis Johnson or rookie free agent Tim Cornett who were also shown the door Monday.

Houston Texans RBs Andre Brown and Alfred Blue may be the two main candidates for the No. 2 running back job during training camp.
Huddle Up: The former N.Y. Giant Brown would seem to rate an edge over the sixth-round rookie Blue, and this could come into play if Arian Foster's health issues flare up again. Still, Gary Kubiak and his run-oriented attack are now in Baltimore, so don't expect the fantasy gold that was the Texans' ground game a few seasons ago.

Free-agent RB Andre Brown (Giants) has signed a 1-year deal worth $645,000 to play for the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: With Ben Tate gone, the Texans needed a RB2 behind Arian Foster, and they filled that bill with Brown, who had a career-high 8 rushing TDs in 2012 and followed that up with career bests in touches (159) and yards from scrimmage (595) this past season.

The Houston Texans are visiting with free-agent RB Andre Brown (Giants) Monday, April 7.
Huddle Up: The Texans could use some veteran Arian Foster insurance, and Brown is a viable option for that role.

There has been no progress of late between the New York Giants and impending unrestricted free agent RB Andre Brown on a new contract.
Huddle Up: Brown missed the first half of the season with a leg fracture but returned to lead the team in rushing with 492 yards and 3 TDs in 8 games. Brown shouldn't be asking for the moon, but the Giants do need to listen given the uncertainty of fellow RB David Wilson's recovery from neck surgery.
