My colleague Bill Williamson is reporting that running back Mike Bell has signed a two-year contract with the Texans.
Bell had some success in Denver, averaging 4.3 yards a carry in 2006 while running for eight touchdowns. The Texans' new run scheme will look a lot like the one used by the Broncos.
Brown is the one slipping, as he has now been out for three consecutive days with a back issue and coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday that the former Titan is still "a few days away at least."
