Texans sign Green to help run game
Monday, March 05, 2007
The Houston Texans agreed to terms with free agent running back Ahman Green on Sunday.
The 30-year-old former Green Bay Packer will likely become the starter for a team that struggled at the position last season after Domanick Williams — formerly Davis — missed the year with knee problems.
Green will be introduced at a 1 p.m. news conference in Houston on Monday, said Texans vice president of communications Tony Wyllie. Terms of the contract were not immediately available.
Houston also has a trio of inexperienced running backs in Wali Lundy, Chris Taylor and fellow former Green Bay player Samkon Gado. They also hope to re-sign free agent Ron Dayne, the 1999 Heisman Trophy winner, who excelled late last season after years of struggles.
Green had 266 carries for 1,059 yards last season after returning from a torn right quadriceps in 2005. He missed two games last season because of lingering effects from the injury.
