Texans expected to add RB Pierre Thomas

By Anthony Caruso III

The Houston Texans appear to be signing former New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas. However, a deal has not officially been agreed upon.

Thomas was released by the Saints in March after spending the past eight years with them. If he does sign, it would likely be for a one-year contract.

He was one of three backs that were brought in today to work out with the team. The others are Ben Malena & Joe McKnight.

Thomas is the most experienced of those three, and the team was linked to Ray Rice. However, Rice hadn’t received a job offer this summer since his incident in Feb. 2014.

Since he wasn’t called in for a work out, it’s good to guess that he wasn’t in their top three. But he is working out in Connecticut with the hopes to get back on the field.

Thomas will be a substitute for back Adrian Foster, who was injured in camp on Monday. Foster, who has battled injuries in recent years, injured his groin.

The Texans are not sure when Foster will return. There is a good likelihood that he will miss NFL games – whether it is part or all of this upcoming season.
