Reports: Texans agree to terms with Alan Ball, Justin Forsett

Posted by Nick Scurfield on June 4, 2012 – 8:41 am

The Texans have agreed to contracts with former Dallas Cowboys cornerback Alan Ball and former Seattle Seahawks running back Justin Forsett, according to multiple reports. The moves are not official, as they have not been announced by the team.

Ball, 27, was drafted by Dallas out of Illinois in 2007, Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ first year as Cowboys head coach. He played for Phillips for three-and-a-half seasons, starting 16 games and intercepting two passes in 2010. Ball (6-2, 197) started two games in 2011.

Forsett, 26, was a seventh-round pick out of California in 2008. He ran for 619 yards (5.4 per carry) in 2009, 523 (4.4 per carry) in 2010 and 145 (3.2 per carry) in 2011. Forsett (5-8, 198) has started seven games and has career totals of 1,287 rushing yards, 730 receiving yards and eight touchdowns.

    Too much Running Backs to be honest. We have Arian Foster as the started, Ben Tate secondary and i think Davin Maggett should be the third string.

    ward costs more money. pure and simple. as for ball i think he’s an insurance policy incase brandon harris isnt ready to step in. just my opinion though :)

    As a transplanted Texans fan living in the Pacific Northwest, I can tell you Forsett has some skills, and he looked good in a Seahawk offense running behind Lynch that had almost no other legitimate weapons. He is no Foster or Tate, but I think he has the potential to be an upgrade from Ward.
