Patriots signed RB George Winn, formerly of the Texans.

An undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati, Winn initially signed with the Texans but was waived immediately after rookie minicamp. In New England, Winn will be a camp body as No. 3 tailback Brandon Bolden nurses a foot ailment.

Texans waived RB George Winn and OT Dann O'Neill.

Winn was Mel Kiper Jr.'s "No. 1 sleeper running back," but made it just 17 days on the roster. Although it's never good news for an undrafted rookie to get waived this early in the offseason, it could be more an indication of the Texans' running back depth than an indictment of Winn's skill. That being said, Winn's 4.75 speed is a major detriment. He'll look to latch on elsewhere as a camp body.

Texans signed Cincinnati RB George Winn.

Winn (5-foot-10 1/2, 218) was pegged as Mel Kiper's No. 1 sleeper running back. Used sparingly his first three years, Winn broke out as a senior Bearcat to rush for 1,334 yards and 13 scores on 243 carries (5.49 YPC). He only had 19 career catches and ran 4.75 at the Combine with a similarly slow 1.61 ten-yard split. Isaiah Pead's successor at Cincinnati, Winn's lack of explosive run skills may ensure he maxes out as no better than a No. 3 or low-end No. 2 NFL back. He'll compete with fellows UDFA running backs Cierre Wood, Ray Graham, and Dennis Johnson in Houston.
