Former LSU running back Alfred Blue has signed a 4-year deal with the Houston Texans. Here are the details according to Spotrac.com
Alfred Blue signed a 4 year / $2.34 million contract with the Houston Texans, including a $117,932 signing bonus, $117,932 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $584,483.
Les Miles spoke at the Houston Touchdown Club Luncheon on Wednesday and said that Blue is "absolutely a steal."
"He will play special teams snaps, start to finish. I think you guys will love him."
"Alfred Blue will be a great addition to the team," Miles said. "One, he's a very bright player. A very talented guy. Two years ago when we started the season, he may well have been the finest back in our conference."
"He took some time to rebound off the injury," Miles said. "But his speed is very good. His ball skills are great. He will run aggressively."
The Texans begin their rookie minicamp Friday.
