Signing Green was a good move, but …
The Houston Texans should be commended for signing Green Bay running back Ahman Green on Sunday. The 30-year-old four-time Pro Bowler, who has rushed for over 1000 yards in six of his nine NFL seasons, is an instant upgrade at the position.
But he’s not the answer to the questions surrounding the Texans’ running game. That would be Oklahoma’s Adrian Peterson, who was one of the most impressive players at the NFL Scouting Combine. And if Peterson is available when the Texans draft in the No. 8 spot, they should grab him – without hesitation.
If the Texans manage to pass on Peterson because they’re confident Green can do the job, they’d be making a colossal mistake. Again.
