Texans Fill Void in Backfield, Sign Ahman Green

(AP) - The Houston Texans agreed to terms with free agent running back Ahman Green on Sunday.  The 30-year-old former Green Bay Packer will likely become the starter for a team that struggled at the position last season.

Texans vice president of communications Tony Wyllie says Green will be introduced at a 1 p.m. news conference in Houston tomorrow.  Terms of the contract were not immediately available. Green had 266 carries for 1,059 yards last season after returning from a torn right quadriceps in 2005. He missed two games last season because of lingering effects from the injury.

Houston also has a trio of inexperienced running backs in Wali Lundy, Chris Taylor and fellow former Green Bay player Samkon Gado.  They also hope to re-sign free agent Ron Dayne, the 1999 Heisman Trophy winner who excelled late last season after years of struggles.
