  Texans | Akeem Hunt drawing interest in Houston    Mon Apr 20, 09:29 AM

Purdue RB Akeem Hunt has drawn interest from the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Hunt is your classic triple threat who often draws comparisons to Darren Sproles (Eagles). At 183 pounds, Hunt is a smaller back with explosive playmaking capability as an outside runner, receiver out of the backfield (or the slot) and kick/punt returner.

  Texans | Cody White re-signed    Thu Apr 9, 04:37 PM

Houston Texans OG Cody White re-signed to an undisclosed deal Thursday, April 9.

Footballguys view: Just a depth pickup off their own practice squad. White might end up carrying more weight on the offensive line, but he'll start fighting for a backup spot during camp.

  Texans | Hope Jadeveon Clowney can return during camp    Fri Apr 3, 06:14 PM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) continues to recover from microfracture surgery, and the team hopes he will be able to return to the field at some point during the later stages of training camp.

Footballguys view: Clowney was the number-one overall pick in the draft last year and his rookie season was a wash. He's got amazing natural ability as a pass-rusher, but this knee injury could rob him of the potential he had coming out of college.

  Texans | Nate Washington signs with Houston    Wed Apr 1, 04:32 PM

Free-agent WR Nate Washington (Titans) signed a one-year deal worth $1 million, including $30,000 guaranteed, Wednesday, April 1.

Footballguys view: The Texans needed to make a move at wide receiver since Andre Johnson is now with the Colts. Washington will compete with Cecil Shorts for the WR2 job opposite DeAndre Hopkins in 2015. Washington is likely better suited to be the team's WR3 this season. With bad QBs in place (Tom Savage, Ryan Mallett), we're not excited about Houston's passing game this year.

  Texans | Big things expected from DeAndre Hopkins    Fri Mar 27, 09:32 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins caught 76 passes for 1,210 yards last year, and among players drafted in the past two seasons, his production was better than everyone except New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. 'We just want to see him continue and progress,' head coach Bill O'Brien said. 'We think he can be one of the best, we think he is one of the best. We have a lot of confidence in him and we're looking forward to seeing him progress when the offseason program starts.'

Footballguys view: With Andre Johnson moving on to the Colts, Hopkins is the team's WR1. We'd feel better about his prospects if the quarterback situation in Houston was better. Guys like Ryan Mallett and Tom Savage don't instill much confidence in the team's passing game.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney continues to recover    Thu Mar 26, 01:14 AM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) continues to recover from microfracture surgery on his knee. Head coach Bill O'Brien said Wednesday, March 25, that there is no timetable for Clowney's return, but the team hopes to get him on the field 'sometime during (training camp).'

Footballguys view: After a disappointing first season because of his injury, Clowney and the Texans hope he starts to show some of the upside he had in college. The team continues to improve the defense, so he has plenty of players around him to pull attention away from him.

  Texans | Xavier Su'a-Filo is candidate to start    Thu Mar 26, 01:12 AM

Houston Texans OG Xavier Su'a-Filo is a candidate to start on the left side with OL Ben Jones moving to center to replace the departed C Chris Myers. Su'a-Filo has been a regular working out in Houston even though the offseason conditioning program doesn't start until April 20. 'He's in there every day working very hard, working in the weight room, because he wants to be good,' head coach Bill O'Brien said. 'I like his demeanor. I like where he is right now.'

Footballguys view: They need to make sure the offensive line is ready to go, as they don't have a quarterback who is so mobile as to overcome a weak pocket. Su'a-Filo has impressed the team by attending workouts at the stadium and putting in a ton of hours.

  Texans | Looking to Vince Wilfork as mentor    Thu Mar 26, 01:11 AM

One reason the Houston Texans signed veteran NT Vince Wilfork was to have him become a positive influence on NT Louis Nix, a third-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft who spent his first year on the reserve/injured list.

Footballguys view: Nix has a lot of potential and Wilfork might help him with the transition, but there is certainly a good chance the veteran is also there to help out on the field if Nix struggles.

  Texans | Akeem Dent re-signs    Tue Mar 24, 03:25 PM

Houston Texans LB Akeem Dent re-signed to an undisclosed contract Tuesday, March 24.

Footballguys view: Dent came to the Texans last year in the trade for QB T.J. Yates. He suffered a high-ankle sprain last year that limited his playing time.

  Texans | J.J. Watt restructures    Tue Mar 24, 09:12 AM

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt restructured his contract Tuesday, March 24, to create $8 million in salary cap space for 2015. His $10 million roster bonus was turned into a signing bonus, according to a source.

  Texans | Cecil Shorts signs with Houston    Mon Mar 16, 03:11 PM

Free-agent WR Cecil Shorts (Jaguars) agreed to terms with the Houston Texans Monday, March 16. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Shorts will now be the Texans WR2 opposite DeAndre Hopkins. He could slide to the slot--arguably a better spot for him--if the Texans add a better wideout in the draft. We're not super excited about his fantasy upside because of the Texans quarterback situation and Shorts' injury history.

  Texans | Cecil Shorts visiting Houston    Mon Mar 16, 10:53 AM

Free-agent WR Cecil Shorts (Jaguars) is visiting the Houston Texans Monday, March 16.

Footballguys view: Shorts could give them a decent WR2 now that Andre Johnson moved on to the Colts. DeAndre Hopkins is their WR1, but Shorts could be an underneath receiver on shorter routes to help move the chains.

  Texans | Vince Wilfork visiting Houston    Sun Mar 15, 10:04 PM

Free-agent DT Vince Wilfork (Patriots) is visiting the Houston Texans Sunday, March 15, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Wilfork hasn't gotten a ton of interest on the open market, but that should change with the first week of free agency in the books.

  Texans | Rahim Moore signs    Thu Mar 12, 04:39 PM

Free-agent FS Rahim Moore (Broncos) agreed to a three-year deal worth $12 million with the Houston Texans Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: That should help the Texans secondary a little, and though Moore isn't much help against the run he's pretty solid in coverage.

  Texans | Closing in on a deal with Rahim Moore    Thu Mar 12, 11:57 AM

Free-agent FS Rahim Moore (Broncos) is closing in on a deal with the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Moore was arguably the second-best safety on the market behind Devin McCourty (Patriots). He plays with a lot of confidence, and Moore can roam the field looking to make plays in coverage and against the run.

  Texans | Send Ryan Fitzpatrick to Jets    Wed Mar 11, 12:06 PM

  Texans | Bruce Carter to visit    Tue Mar 10, 06:10 PM

Free-agent LB Bruce Carter (Cowboys) will visit with the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Carter racked up 68 tackles and intercepted five passes in 2014. He would be a good fit for the Texans defense as a smart playmaker at outside linebacker.

  Texans | Case Keenum traded    Tue Mar 10, 05:48 PM

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum was traded to the St. Louis Rams Tuesday, March 10, for a seventh-round draft pick in 2016, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Keenum will serve as a backup quarterback behind Nick Foles. He was expendable in Houston with the addition of Brian Hoyer and re-signing of Ryan Mallett.

  Texans | Looking to add Vince Wilfork    Tue Mar 10, 04:51 PM

Free-agent DT Vince Wilfork (Patriots) is receiving interest from the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: The big man in the middle still feels he can play at a high level. He would be a great asset for the Texans defense. Wilfork can eat up double teams and he'll even get a little bit of interior push on the quarterback.

  Texans | Brian Hoyer headed to Houston    Tue Mar 10, 12:38 PM

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer will sign with the Houston Texans, according to a source. The deal is expected to be done within 24 hours.

Footballguys view: Hoyer was also considering the New York Jets. In Houston, he'll compete with Ryan Mallett and Tom Savage for the starting job in 2015. Hoyer has the most starting experience, and he could be considered the frontrunner at this time.

  Texans | Thaddeus Lewis cut    Mon Mar 9, 05:33 PM

Houston Texans QB Thaddeus Lewis was released Monday, March 9.

  Texans | Andre Johnson officially released    Mon Mar 9, 04:02 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson was officially released Monday, March 9.

Footballguys view: This move was expected as the Texans were looking to trade Johnson, but they found no suitors. Johnson wants to play for a contender, and that's why teams like the Eagles, Colts or Ravens could be interested in the veteran wideout.

  Texans | Andre Johnson to be cut    Mon Mar 9, 11:35 AM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson is expected to be released Monday, March 9, as the team failed to find a match for a trade.

Footballguys view: Things fell apart for Johnson last year as he was frustrated with the direction of the offense. We could see teams like the Ravens and the Eagles show interest in the veteran wideout.

  Texans | Damaris Johnson re-signs with Houston    Mon Mar 9, 10:49 AM

Houston Texans WR Damaris Johnson has re-signed with the Texans on an undisclosed deal Monday, March 9.

Footballguys view: He's a slot receiver who could catch about 30 passes for the Texans this year. Johnson will also contribute on punt and kick returns.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett re-ups in Houston    Mon Mar 9, 10:07 AM

Houston Texans impending free-agent QB Ryan Mallett agreed to a two-year deal with the Texans Monday, March 9.

Footballguys view: This move was expected. The Texans traded for Mallett last year, but he was hurt just a couple of games in. Mallett will compete with Tom Savage for the starting job. We'd expect Mallett to win that job.

  Texans | Brian Hoyer likely to Houston    Mon Mar 9, 09:29 AM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer is going to sign with the Houston Texans, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Jets are not out of the picture just yet. We'll wait to see if he can be added to compete with Ryan Mallett and Tom Savage for the starting job.

  Texans | Kareem Jackson re-signs with Houston    Sat Mar 7, 06:11 PM

Houston Texans impending free-agent CB Kareem Jackson re-signed with team Saturday, March 7, on a four-year, $34 million deal, according to a source. The deal includes $20 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: A premium price tag for a top-15 cornerback, but the Texans keep their secondary intact. Jackson will start opposite Jonathan Joseph this year, and the Texans will move him to the slot in nickel packages. With Jackson wrapped up, expect the market for guys like Brandon Flowers and Byron Maxwell to explode.

  Texans | Houston eyeing Torrey Smith?    Sat Mar 7, 02:56 PM

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR Torrey Smith could be a target of the Houston Texans this offseason following the departure of WR Andre Johnson.

Footballguys view: Smith has the deep speed to stretch the field. The Texans have a couple of strong-armed quarterbacks in Tom Savage and Ryan Mallett (if he's re-signed). The fit is there, and Smith's price tag won't be too outrageous.

  Texans | Randall Cobb being pursued by Houston    Sat Mar 7, 02:54 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb will be a free-agent target of the Houston Texans if he does not re-sign with Green Bay.

Footballguys view: Cobb would give the team a dangerous weapon to start opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Too bad Houston doesn't have a better quarterback (Tom Savage, really?) to take advantage of their wide receivers.

  Texans | Houston pursuing Jeremy Maclin    Sat Mar 7, 02:52 PM

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent Jeremy Maclin is being pursued by the Houston Texans to replace WR Andre Johnson.

Footballguys view: News flash! Houston is interested in wide receivers if the one they drove off doesn't come back. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out. What is a mystery is why Houston seems content to roll into the regular season with either Ryan Mallett (if he's re-signed) or Tom Savage (ugh) as their starting quarterback.

  Texans | Houston aiming for Brian Hoyer     Sat Mar 7, 01:14 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer will be targeted by the Houston Texans during free agency, according to sources.

Footballguys view: LOL. Awesome. That would give them competition for Tom Savage or Ryan Mallett (if he's re-signed) in training camp. The Texans have a horrible QB situation, and Hoyer isn't going to make it that much better.

  Texans | Derek Newton might return to Houston    Sat Mar 7, 01:58 AM

The Houston Texans and impending free-agent OT Derek Newton are engaged in active negotiations, and there is a possibility he returns to the team.

Footballguys view: Newton was a decent starter at right tackle last year for the Texans. His price tag is unlikely to be outrageous, so we could see him staying in Houston. If not, we predict the Broncos would make a strong push for the veteran tackle.

  Texans | Brian Hartline visiting Houston    Thu Mar 5, 11:14 AM

Free-agent WR Brian Hartline (Dolphins) is visiting with the Houston Texans Thursday, March 5.

Footballguys view: The Texans are likely to part ways with Andre Johnson. They'll need some veteran depth behind DeAndre Hopkins if (when) that happens. Hartline is a decent player who could be their WR2.

  Texans | Chris Myers to be released    Wed Mar 4, 02:29 PM

Houston Texans C Chris Myers has been informed that he will be released.

  Texans | Andre Johnson to have little trade value?    Tue Mar 3, 05:14 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson wants out of Houston, but the Texans may not get much in return for him if he is traded.

Footballguys view: The Texans may just end up cutting him. They already don't want to pay Johnson the $11.5 million he's due next season, and interested teams know that. They could just wait it out or send the Texans low-ball offers to see if they get desperate.

  Texans | Andre Johnson asked to change roles    Mon Mar 2, 10:51 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson was asked to accept a reduced role, but he declined and asked to be traded or cut, according to people familiar with the situation.

Footballguys view: The Texans are shaking things up here. Johnson should attract some interest on the open market, but we don't know how much he'll fetch in a trade. Some likely landing spots are with teams in need of WR help--Kansas City and Carolina spring to mind.

  Texans | Andre Johnson finished in Houston    Mon Mar 2, 09:30 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson's agent has been given permission to seek a trade, and Johnson will be cut if a deal cannot be worked out.

Footballguys view: This has been brewing for some time as Johnson wasn't happy with the team last year before the start of the season. The Texans will save $8.825 million against the salary cap if Johnson is traded or cut.

  Texans | Brian Cushing had multiple surgeries    Sat Feb 28, 02:55 PM

Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing (wrist, knee, ankle) underwent multiple surgeries following the 2014 season. Cushing had surgery to repair a broken right wrist and also had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and left ankle.

Footballguys view: Cushing said he's still on schedule to be ready for the offseason program. The Texans should take it easy on him as he comes back from these surgeries.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett recovering from surgery    Wed Feb 25, 04:43 PM

Houston Texans impending free-agent QB Ryan Mallett (pectoral) is recovering from surgery on a torn pectoral muscle. Mallett said he's already thrown a football and that the recovery process is day-by-day.

Footballguys view: We could see Mallett returning to the Texans in 2015. He barely got to start for them last year before injuring his pectoral muscle. He's the strong-armed pocket passer that head coach Bill O'Brien likes, and his main competition for the starting job will be second-year QB Tom Savage.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett wants to stay with HOU    Wed Feb 25, 04:12 PM

Houston Texans impending free-agent QB Ryan Mallett said he'd like stay with the Texans and hopes both parties can get a new contract worked out.

Footballguys view: We think the Texans go ahead and keep him around after trading a late-round pick for his services last year. Mallett is recovering from surgery on a torn muscle in his pectoral.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins recovering from surgery    Sun Feb 22, 08:01 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (wrist) said in a radio interview that he had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his wrist after the regular season. He said he had a pin and rod inserted into the wrist that was set to be removed Saturday, Feb. 21. He expects to resume regular activities in a couple of weeks.

Footballguys view: Hopkins should be good to go when minicamp opens up, although the Texans may want to bring him along slowly as he comes back from this injury. Either way, it's not going to hamper him in training camp. What could hold him back is the bad QB situation the Texans have. Ryan Mallett or Tom Savage could be the lead QB for Houston in 2015....and neither are good options.
