HOUSTON (AP) -The Houston Texans signed free agent running back Chris Brown on Thursday.
Brown appeared in 12 games last season for the Tennessee Titans and finished with 462 yards rushing and five touchdowns. He was taken by the Titans in the third round of the 2003 draft and ran for 2,757 yards and 16 TDs in five seasons with Tennessee.
He'll join Ahman Green at running back with the Texans and his signing could mean the end of Ron Dayne's tenure in Houston. Green is expected to be healthy this season after missing nine games in 2007 and finishing with 70 carries for 260 yards.
The Texans have not re-signed Dayne, an unrestricted free agent who led the team in rushing the last two seasons.
