The team lost backup running back Ben Tate earlier this offseason, and considering Arian Foster‘s inability to stay healthy, it was only a matter of time before the Texans added a veteran back. The other running backs currently on Houston’s roster (Dennis Johnson, Deji Karim and Jonathan Grimes) ran for only 264 yards last season.
Brown broke onto the scene with the Giants in 2012, rushing for 385 yards and eight touchdowns. He broke his fibula in late November that year, ending his season. He injured his leg during the 2013 preseason and ran for 492 yards this past season. Brown has also shown an ability to catch the ball, grabbing 20 receptions in 2013.
