This might be a bit of a stretch to call Casey a running back, but fullbacks still count. Casey has his best NFL season in 2012 for the Houston Texans as a fullback/tight end combination with 34 receptions for 330 yards and three touchdowns. This allowed him to get a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he will still be a fullback/tight end combination and will look to continue to grow the footprint of Conference USA backs.
