The Texans played running back swap on Monday.

After releasing several running backs earlier in the day, the team has agreed to terms with former first-round pick Ronnie Brown, according to a league source. 

Brown, 32, was the second overall pick by the Dolphins in 2005 out of Auburn. He spent six years in Miami, one in Philadelphia and the last two in San Diego.

Last year, he rushed just 45 times for 157 yards and one touchdown. He made the Pro Bowl in 2008. In his career, Brown has 1,261 attempts with 5,328 yards and 38 touchdowns. He hasn't had more than 46 attempts since 2010, his last year with the Dolphins.

According to the Houston Chronicle and Fox26, who first reported the Brown signing, the Texans are also signing local product William Powell.

Powell, 26, played high school ball at Duncanville and joined the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent in 2011. In 2012, he ran 59 times for 216 yards.
