  Texans | Houston signs two players    Mon Mar 30, 05:44 PM

Updating previous reports, free-agent QB AJ McCarron (Texans) and S Jaylen Watkins (Chargers) officially signed with the Houston Texans Monday, March 30. Official terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: McCarron is going to resume his role as a backup to Deshaun Watson. We've seen what happens when he plays, so the Texans will not be in great shape if Watson has to miss time.

  Texans | Randall Cobb better than ever?    Sat Mar 28, 09:01 PM

Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb said he feels better than he has in at least five years after focusing on improving his hamstring strength during his time with the Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: That's cool but we'll believe it when we see it. Cobb had a resurgence last year with the Cowboys and now gets another new start in Houston. The team is going to be making up for the loss of DeAndre Hopkins and Cobb could have quite the role.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins shipped to Arizona    Mon Mar 16, 01:42 PM

Arizona Cardinals RB David Johnson, a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 fourth-round pick were traded to the Houston Texans in exchange for WR DeAndre Hopkins and a 2021 fourth-round draft pick on Monday, March 16.

Footballguys view: Just an awful deal for the Texans here. Hopkins is one of the greatest wide receivers in the league and the Texans don't have a first-round pick. Sure, they've got a couple of second-round picks now but the caliber of receiver available then -- even quality guys like Denzel Mims or Tee Higgins -- are not the level of Hopkins. Bill O'Brien as general manager of the Texans is not making a wise move here.

  Texans | Houston was scheduled to meet with Jalen Hurts    Fri Mar 13, 07:14 PM

Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts was scheduled to meet with the Houston Texans leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft, but the meeting has been cancelled.

Footballguys view: Hurts would be an interesting developmental prospect to sit behind Deshaun Watson and learn. The Texans don't have a first-round pick due to the Laremy Tunsil trade. Hurts has some hype around him but was not going to be a first-round pick anyway. We could see him go in the second or third round.

  Texans | Jordan Taylor's workout postponed    Fri Mar 13, 06:02 PM

  Texans | Lamar Miller finished in Houston?    Thu Mar 12, 09:45 PM

Houston Texans impending free-agent RB Lamar Miller (knee) isn't expected to receive an offer from the Texans during his free agency, according to sources.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Miller tore his ACL and MCL last year in the preseason and has been recovering ever since then. A fourth-round pick in the 2012 NFL draft, Miller has a couple of 1,000-yard seasons under his belt and should get a bit of interest on the open market. He won't be a starter but some team could sign him for veteran depth.

  Texans | Carlos Hyde's agent meets with HOU    Fri Feb 28, 06:49 PM

Footballguys view: Hyde wants to stay with the Texans after having the best season of his pro career with them in 2019. We should see these two sides be able to come to an agreement that is mutually beneficial. Hyde isn't going to get a deal that break the bank and the Texans know that he can be a key part of their offense when healthy.

He was a first-round bust for the Buccaneers who selected him at No.11 overall in the 2016 NFL draft. Hargreaves is good for veteran depth but he gets burnt by top receivers when he's starting.
