Blue has been working out with Vikings running back Adrian Peterson in Houston, hoping to increase his speed and durability. Last year, Blue rushed for 528 yards and two touchdowns, starting in three games. This season, despite Arian Foster's role as the No. 1 back, Blue wants to become a bigger contributor.
"They tell you every year that nobody's set, nobody's safe," Blue said. "You've got to come in every year like you just got drafted or like you're an undrafted free agent trying to make the team."
Perennial Pro Bowl wideout
Johnson was surprisingly released by Houston, but revenge was not part of his game plan.
"(Leaving the Texans) hasn't even really set in," he told the Houston Chronicle. "I was just talking about that with someone (Thursday). Everybody thinks that I went to the Colts to try and get back at the Texans and stuff like that. That had nothing to do with it. I just went to the ... place where I felt was the best fit for me and where I can have a chance to win a championship.
"It wasn't about circling (game) dates or nothing against the Texans. I had 12 great years here. Been around some great people, built some great relationships, a lot of great friends. Houston's always going to be my home."
Johnson remained productive in 2014, but his yards-per-catch average declined to 11.0, its lowest since 2005.
Smith has played in the NFL since 2003. He reached the Pro Bowl in 2012 with the Texans and spent part of last season with the Eagles.
