  Texans | Reduce roster by 18 players    Fri Aug 31, 04:05 PM

The Houston Texans have released RB Jonathan Grimes, FB Moran Norris, SS Eddie Pleasant, TE Logan Brock, DE Keith Browner, LB D.J. Bryant, DT Loni Fangupo, DE David Hunter, WR Juaquin Iglesias, LB Delano Johnson, DE Mitch King, LB Shawn Loiseau, WR Jeff Maehl, OT Nate Menkin, LB Rennie Moore, TE Phillip Supernaw, C Cody Wallace and OG Cody White.

Footballguys view: Grimes was a hit early in training camp, and he should get offered a roster spot. If injuries hit the Texans backfield hard this year, we could be talking about Grimes again.

  Texans | Moran Norris signed    Thu Jun 14, 03:48 PM

The Houston Texans have signed free-agent FB Moran Norris (49ers). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: James Casey is listed as a Fullback on the team's official depth chart but plays more like a Tight End or H-back. Norris played for the Texans from 2002-2005 and gives the team a hard nosed blocker for their ground game. He'll compete in training camp with converted Practice Squad Linebacker Derrell Smith and undrafted rookie Jason Ford for a roster spot.

  49ers | Moran Norris could see more touches    Sat Jul 9, 03:53 PM

San Francisco 49ers FB Moran Norris could receive more touches this season if he starts because QB Alex Smith said expects the fullback to have expanded duties in the new offense. Norris received seven touches last season.

Footballguys view: More touches for Norris could potentially mean less for rookie RB Kendall Hunter. The 49ers drafted the dynamic rookie to complement starter Frank Gore. Hunter can be used effectively as a receiver out of the backfield.

  49ers | Will have tough decision to make at fullback    Tue Jun 29, 08:20 PM

The San Francisco 49ers will have a tough decision to make at fullback, where FB Moran Norris is currently leading FB Brit Miller for the job, reports CBSSports.com. Norris is coming off a bad season in 2009, but Miller is less physical than Norris. However, Miller is younger, cheaper, a better receiving threat and one of the team's better players on special teams.

Footballguys view: Miller was a converted linebacker from Illinois, but has been working primarily as a fullback since he came out of college. His versatility (and his price) could make him the choice for the 49ers.
