    RB Gary Russell only 22 was released by the Bengals but was a big back option for the Steelers imo he should be in camp at least and wouldn't cost much.

    Former Tennessee RB Arian Foster has told Scout.com that he has agreed to terms with the Houston Texans.

    In 48 games for the Volunteers, Foster rushed for 2,964 yards and 23 touchdowns. He also caught 83 passes for 742 yards and two more scores.

    Saints sign P.J. Hill very interesting..if he stays healthy would be a nice pickup. Still would like to see Gary Russell get a shot.

    Would have liked them to hold out a little longer to maybe if there were any proven backs let go. Perhaps they still can, but picking up Hill makes it less likely.

    Not really because they can be cut at anytime just like Gary Russell was cut by the Steelers and played pretty good for them then Cinci signed him and then a week later cut him too.

    If he can stay healthy and attitude stays positive he has a chance. I'm still upset that the Chargers took Gartrell Johnson.

    All SEC at Cornerback AND Safety and he didn't get drafted and is still floating around out there:

    Derek Pegues. Somebody make a phone call. SURELY the Saints can squeeze in an athlete like Pegues into their roster.

    Agree I definitly thought he would've been picked up and Saints definitely should give him a shot. Think he's doing some training camps though

    Donaldson is an interesting prospect. 5'11", 220 "bowling ball" TB, leading rusher in the nation last year at over 160 yards a game. Here's some video (patience, the highlights don't start until a minute or so into the clip)
