Running backs coach Chick Harris will see the NFL's 2012 touchdown king in
RB Arian Foster
1,411 rush yds, 15 rushing TD in 2012
40 rec, 217 yds and 2 TD catches in 2012
“I think Arian is more determined than ever to reach his goals of being better than last year and obtaining more yards in both the passing game and run game. He knows what he did the year before. He did not attain the amount of yards that he had prior so therefore he’s gunning for it.
He’s a talented individual, he’s got size, good speed. He’s got tremendous instincts to run with the football inside the tackles. He has the ability to set blocks on the perimeter, on the outside and make good runs. He’s an extremely gifted receiver out of the backfield. He hasn’t even gotten close to what he can do.”
FB Greg Jones
Joins Texans after 9 years in Jacksonville
270 carries for 911 yds and 10 TD in his career
“Greg Jones is a pro. He’s a guy that has played for ten years and he’s a class act all the way. He’s a very powerful man, and he’s got the type of size and mass that you would like for a fullback to have. I think he has the type of attitude that will be that way.
He’s a taller, rangier guy. He’s not compact but has tremendous upper body strength and along with blocking he can run the football and he can also catch it.
He will mix it up. He’s not going to shy away from anybody and he has an enforcer-type of mentality right now. He’ll be a banger and make sure the running lanes will be clear.”
