Browns send Duke to Texans

Recommended Posts

Not bad.  Texans will get a comp pick anyway (if clowney walks) to make up for the pick they give up.  duke is one of the best receiving backs in the league.

I'll take it, seems like a solid fit. Was talking about Duke since he made his first trade demand, so this lines up with what what I wanted.

(Well, I WANT Saquan, you can ask @Forge).

Looks good on the 36 headed GM, solid move.

Wow.... although Texans really need a RB I can’t help but think the Browns won this deal. Duke has to come off the field every other play because he’s hurt. Like the guy but he needed to go.

That's actually a really solid return for the Browns, I think.

McKinnon would have been cheaper. Just saying.

Much higher compensation than I thought the Browns would get. I never wanted to trade him, but I am also excited to see what he does with an increased role.

I like Duke a lot, but given the trade price for RBs recently, I can't help but think the Texans got hosed a bit here. How surprising, the team without a GM didn't get good value in a trade. It's almost like you need a GM.

I do wonder who Dorsey negotiated with on the Texans side.  In my experience, negotiating as a group usually goes super well.

Yeah, it's usually rough. The agreed upon price was a little high, but - eh, just happy to see life out of this FO.

Sooo... someone is making decisions for the Texans.

Question is, who?

A 4th was about the highest I expected. If it can turn into a third, then that's awesome.

Duke is a good player, though. I think Houston fans will like him. He's a very good change-of-pace back - he's just not a feature back.

Yeah ultra talented.  He’s one of the hardest runners I’ve seen.  Breaks tackles like crazy and elusive.  He’s never *really* injured but has to come off the field cause his body broke in half after being tackled by a big linebacker .  Deals with soft tissue injuries (hasn’t practiced since day one).  Has a problem with fumbles too.  But basically hes Darren sproles

Injuries are the only issue with him, so, yeah, this could be an awesome pickup. You guys got such a great weapon in the passing game...a really nice safety valve. Wish him the best.
