    Adam Schefter reports the Texans have cut him... is he worth a look as a possible solution to our RB problem?

    He is coming off an injury, so he might be willing to sign a cheap 1 year deal, or a reasonable extended contract for both sides...

    If he is only a temporary solution (1 year), then we'd solve our RB problem this year and could target Turner as a UFA next year...

    Bring him for camp and let him compete but I wouldn't bank on Williams being the top guy all year long. History of injuries and inconsistency has hurt his career.

    I would definitely like to see this. Ifhe can stay healthy he could be the veteran we need. He has pretty good hands as well. #1 on my list of available backs

    Williams nee Davis needs more surgery. As of right now I don't think he's an option.
    *************************************************************
    Domanick Williams-RB- Texans Mar. 23 - 4:04 pm et
    Texans released RB Domanick Williams.

    The man formerly known as Domanick Davis is set to undergo another round of knee surgery. He wasn't in the plans for Houston's new coaching staff from the start. Williams is only 26 and could sign on with a team during training camp or in-season if he can pass a physical.

    Then there's just no way this is going to work!

    If I remember correctly there was discussion regarding the large dollars they had committed to this guy and the draft coming up with Bush on the board.
    Sad that it has come to this when they had a chance to pick up Bush last year and passed. That's going from smelling roses to stepping on thorns in a real hurry. Ouch.

    I say take him, if he is healthy he could prove to carry the load for a year or two.

    The RB problems we have will be taken care of draft day. We have depth, we just need our number one pick to take over the top spot.

    I'm not sure TT is picking a RB in the first round, and I'm not sure Lynch is going to be available at #16, I have a feeling the Bills are going to take him.

    I'd take Williams in a heart beat.

    The guy is big, fast, and he has exceptional hands. He can't stay healthy, but honestly--Houston can't keep anybody healthy. Carr would be great if he wasn't on his *** every down.

    Quit complaining. My first round pick was Lamont Jordan and my third was Culpepper. It was a long fantasy season. I did get Phillip Rivers in the 14th round and make him a four year keeper

    I read somewhere that Williams' knee problem was "bone-on-bone" as in no cartilege left there. Now THAT is painful. I don't see him passing a physical antwhere.
