The Houston Texans agreed to terms with free agent running back Ahman Green on Sunday. The 30-year-old former Green Bay Packer will likely become the starter for a team that struggled at the position last season after Domanick Williams – formerly Davis – missed the year with knee problems. Green had 266 carries for 1,059 yards last season after returning from torn right quadriceps in 2005. He missed two games last season because of lingering effects from the injury. He has 8,491 yards and 54touchdowns in his nine-year career that began with Seattle. Cowboys sign Davis, extend Glenn: The Dallas Cowboys agreed to terms with free agent offensive lineman Leonard Davis on a seven-year contract worth nearly $50 million. Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple confirmed the deal Sunday, but not the details of the agreement. He said a formal announcement by the team was expected today. According to various reports, including a story posted on the team’s Web site, Davis’s deal included $18.75 million in guaranteed money. Davis spent his first six seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. Green will be introduced at a news conference today in Houston, said Texans vice president of communications Tony Wyllie. Terms of the contract were not immediately available. Houston also has a trio of inexperienced running backs in Wali Lundy, Chris Taylor and fellow former Green Bay player Samkon Gado. They also hope to re-sign free agent Ron Dayne, the 1999 Heisman Trophy winner, who excelled late last season after years of struggles. Meanwhile, the Cowboys picked up wide receiver Terry Glenn’s $5 million roster bonus, virtually assuring he will remain with the team. Jags go deep with Northcutt: The Jacksonville Jaguars believe they have found a legitimate deep threat in free agency, agreeing to a five-year contract with former Cleveland receiver Dennis Northcutt. Northcutt was flying to Jacksonville for a physical Sunday and was expected to sign the deal today. The contract was reportedly worth $17 million and included a $4.5-million signing bonus. Lions do an end around: Free agent defensive end Dewayne White left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a better opportunity and more money in Detroit just like his former assistant coach did last year. White signed a five-year contract worth $29 million – $13million guaranteed – with the Lions to become a starter and reunite with coach Rod Marinelli. Fullback plan for Bucs: Free-agent fullback B.J. Askew signed a contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Askew, drafted by the Jets in the third round out of Michigan in 2003, has played in 55 games in his four NFL seasons, all with New York. Wright time for Browns: Defensive back Kenny Wright signed a three-year contract with Cleveland. Wright had 43 tackles and one interception in 16 games, including nine starts, for the Washington Redskins last season. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
