Texans bring on former Giants RB Andre Brown
APR 07, 2014 4:46p ET
Brown played the last two seasons with the Giants, battling through a broken leg in each of his two years in New York. Despite only playing in the final half of the season last year, Brown finished the season with a career-high 492 yards along with three touchdowns while averaging 3.5 yards per carry.
Brown, who is expected to be Arian Foster's backup, tweeted out a photo of himself signing the contract wearing a Texans cap confirming the news.
After Tate signed a two-year deal with the Cleveland Browns last month, adding another running back was made a priority by the Texans with Foster set to return from a back injury that required surgery in November.
