    Texans get Ray Graham

    Another Pitt RB goes right by us, he's in there backyard why not bring him in. I watched him play and the dude was awesome and to think he didn't even get drafted, WOW.

    How do you know they didn't try to bring him in? UDFA's, especially priority ones, generally go to the highest bidder. Like Bill Polian was saying, sometimes it's better to go undrafted than to be picked late in the 7th.

    I would have to think they looked at his medicals. Graham at times seems hesitant to put weight on that leg and he runs stiffed legged. There were runs that he had a hole a mile wide and he'd get 20 yards, before the injury he'd get 60.

    Wouldn't shock me if the Texans kept him around and worried about him getting healthier for a year and then unleash him in 2014.

    We already have more RBs than the Jets have QBs. Not signing an UDFA RB is not that much of a concern.

    The Steelers just signed another former Pitt RB on Saturday, Larod Stephens-Howling. I can see him being the new 3rd down back. I remember when we played the Cards 2 years ago he took a swing pass and burned us for about a 75 yd TD run.

    LS-H I think was signed more for his KR/PR ability's. Antonio really is the only other threat at that on the roster. Yes LS-H does offer that 3rd down potential and I'm sure he may get some looks there but his real value is in the returns.

    Ray Graham was not the same rb after the ACL tear. I'm sure that's the reason they passed on him. If they didn't draft LAcy because of medical then Graham really didn't have much of a shot here either.
