  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney extension still the plan    Fri Apr 19, 11:13 AM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney is still in the team's plans to sign a long-term deal, according to general manager Brian Gaine.

Footballguys view: Clowney wants a new deal and the two sides have until mid-July to work something out. Deals get done at deadlines in the NFL, so we likely won't have any answer on this until that time.

  Texans | Keke Coutee aiming to stay healthy    Thu Apr 18, 09:46 PM

Houston Texans WR Keke Coutee said his main goal for the 2019 season is to be able to play all 16 games.

Footballguys view: That would be nice. Coutee is a dangerous playmaker with the ball in his hands. The Texans need a threat other than DeAndre Hopkins to emerge...and stay healthy...in the passing game. Coutee will compete with Will Fuller for that role, even though Fuller is more of a no.2 WR and Coutee is more of a no.3 WR.

  Texans | D'Onta Foreman in good condition    Thu Apr 18, 02:09 PM

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) returned to the team in good shape, according to general manager Brian Gaine.

Footballguys view: Foreman only appeared in two games in 2018, including the playoffs. His second season was lost due to this injury but now that he's healthy Foreman should push Lamar Miller for playing time. Pay attention to this battle, and Foreman's effectiveness, in the preseason.

  Texans | Will Fuller on track for opener    Thu Apr 18, 12:26 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) is fully anticipated to be ready for the Texans' regular-season opener, according to general manager Brian Gaine. 'Everything is trending in the right direction,' Gaine said Thursday, April 19. 'Everything is looking good.'

Footballguys view: Fuller brings speed to stretch the field for the Texans offense when he's healthy. The talent is there but man alive does he get banged up a lot. We're excited that Fuller will be ready for the season opener in 2019 but there's also some trepidation given his injury history.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney, team not close on deal    Mon Apr 15, 01:43 AM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney, the team's unsigned franchise player, will not attend the offseason conditioning program or organized team activities (OTAs). Beat writer Aaron Wilson says there is no deal in sight, and no signing is expected anytime soon.

Footballguys view: Clowney and the Texans have until July 15th to agree to a new long-term deal. They aren't close to that yet, but deals get done at deadlines in the NFL. Perhaps as we get closer to mid-July something will give. Some out there think this could get ugly.

  Texans | Will Fuller a near lock for Week 1?    Sun Apr 14, 04:41 PM

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) will be at 10 months removed from tearing an anterior cruciate ligament when Week 1 begins. In the opinion of HoustonTexans.com's Drew Dougherty, he'll be 'stunned' if Fuller isn't on the field for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Fuller may be on the field at that time but he may not be 100 percent. They will likely ease him into action once training camp hits in August. We'll see if Fuller can stay healthy and produce. Talent is not an issue with the young receiver, but he has yet to play a full 16-game season in three years as a pro.

  Texans | Deshaun Watson was tops under pressure    Fri Apr 12, 12:19 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson posted a league-best 88.2 passer rating when under pressure in the 2018 season.

Footballguys view: There is no doubt that Watson gets it done under pressure. The Texans would be wise to lessen that pressure on Watson so he doesn't get banged up.

  Texans | Darrell Henderson pays Houston a visit    Mon Apr 8, 02:01 PM

Memphis RB Darrell Henderson recently met with the Houston Texans, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson via a league source.

Footballguys view: Henderson is a big play waiting to happen. He's got long speed and gets to top speed in a hurry. Henderson lacks prototypical size and may not be able to block effectively on third down. He should be a second- or third-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

  Texans | Houston to meet with Rodney Anderson    Thu Apr 4, 05:08 PM

Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson is scheduled to meet with the Houston Texans before the 2019 NFL Draft, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Anderson is a volume runner with the power to wear an opponent down as a game goes on. His college career had flashes but a few major injuries held him back. If healthy, Anderson is a natural runner who can work his way through traffic. He's likely a late-round pick or priority free agent in the 2019 NFL draft class.

  Texans | Will Fuller ready by camp?    Thu Apr 4, 03:00 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) could be ready for training camp, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien said Houston feels 'really good' about where Fuller is in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: Fuller played in seven games in 2018 before going down with an ACL injury. He's never played a full 16-game season in his pro career due to various injuries, so Fantasy GMs are already prepared if he misses more time. The talent is there, and we'll see if Fuller can finally stay healthy this season...and whether or not the Texans exercise his fifth-year option for 2020 (the deadline to pick up that option is May 3rd 2019).

  Texans | D'Onta Foreman dropping weight    Mon Mar 25, 12:20 PM

Houston Texans RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles) is reportedly 'much leaner' than he was during his first two NFL seasons and is currently 'a few pounds shy' of the 235-pound weight at which he was listed on the roster in 2018.

Footballguys view: Foreman appeared in just one game in the 2018 season, rushing seven times for minus-1 yard. The Texans have been optimistic about his return from the Achilles' injury that limited him in 2018. They have Lamar Miller as their lead back, but he's in the final year of his contract with the team. Foreman could earn a large role if he can stay healthy and impress on the field.

  Texans | Houston signs Matt Kalil    Fri Mar 22, 07:05 PM

Free-agent OT Matt Kalil (Panthers) signed a one-year deal with the Houston Texans Friday, March 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Kalil has been on a steep decline, but might still fit on the Texans offensive line, which says more about the quality of the players they have right now than his remaining abilities. Houston should be focused on the offensive line early in the draft next month.

Free-agent TE Darren Fells (Browns) is signing a one-year deal with the Houston Texans Monday, March 18, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fells is a good blocking tight end and that's how the Texans should use him. He did catch three touchdowns last year for the Browns, but now will work in behind Jordan Thomas with the Texans.

  Texans | AJ McCarron visiting Texans    Mon Mar 18, 10:07 AM

Free-agent QB AJ McCarron (Raiders) is visiting the Houston Texans Monday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Texans only have one quarterback on their roster, starter and star Deshaun Watson. McCarron has failed to impress as a backup through a couple of stops in the NFL but might be able to convince the Texans brass that he is the answer for the clear need at backup quarterback.

  Texans | Darren Fells visiting HOU    Mon Mar 18, 09:42 AM

Free-agent TE Darren Fells (Browns) is visiting the Houston Texans Monday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Texans are clearly looking for some help at the tight end position. Jordan Thomas has good upside, but he's still developing at the position since transitioning from a college wide receiver at Mississippi State. We'll see if they add Fells or some other tight end through free agency or the draft.
