Cierre Wood the Texans RB3?-- Mon Jun 24 4:25 pm --
Projection has ex-Irish RB winning camp battle
CSN Houston projects Arian Foster, Ben Tate and Cierre Wood will make the 53-man roster.
The only one in question here is Cierre Wood. He’s battling veteran Deji Karim and rookie Dennis Johnson for the roster spot. Wood just seems like a better runner, even though Johnson has been really impressive. Wood is the kind of guy who might end up being a No. 2 next season. Johnson makes the team if he shows the Texans during training camp that he can be a real force on special teams. (CSN Houston)
FF Today's Take:Houston Chronicle reporter John McClain tweeted last week that Johnson was the most impressive undrafted free agent in the Texans' offseason program and this blurb actually supports that notion. Most of the reason why the Texans RB3 battle matters is because Foster is already hurt and has a league-leading 1,115 touches over the past three seasons while Tate has been oft-injured in his career and is highly unlikely to return after his contract expires at the end of the season.
