  Texans | Two more Houston rookies sign    Wed May 12, 08:25 PM

Houston Texans TE Brevin Jordan and DT Roy Lopez both signed four-year rookie contracts Wednesday, May 12. Financial terms of the contracts weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Jordan is an athletic tight end who can get open down the seam. He can create large windows for his quarterback and is a player we'll monitor closely as he potentially moves to the top of the Texans depth chart at the tight end position.

  Texans | Nico Collins signs rookie pact    Wed May 12, 06:42 PM

Houston Texans WR Nico Collins signed his four-year rookie contract with the Houston Texans Wednesday, May 12, according to his agents. Financials terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Collins is a big-bodied rookie from Michigan the Texans picked up in the third round of the 2021 NFL draft. He knows how to use his frame to box out smaller defenders and can use his build up speed to attack a defense deep. Collins will push for a job behind Brandin Cooks on the depth chart.

  Texans | Houston inks two UDFA receivers    Mon May 3, 12:43 AM

Undrafted free-agent WRs Marlon Williams (Central Florida) and Damon Hazelton (Missouri) agreed to terms with the Houston Texans on Sunday, May 2.

Footballguys view: Williams was an ascending talent in college at UCF, ranking 5th in the FBS in receiving yards per game (129.9) last year. He led all FBS receivers in broken tackles and has no problem running through arm tackles. Williams is not overly fast and may struggle to create separation in the NFL.

  Texans | Nico Collins lands in Houston    Fri Apr 30, 11:03 PM

Michigan WR Nico Collins was selected by the Houston Texans with the 89th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Collins has a nice size/speed combination and knows how to use his frame to his advantage. He can make contested catches but scouts were concerned about how many he has to make because he lacks separation ability. We'll see if Collins can work on that skill to become a better pro.

  Texans | Houston selects Davis Mills    Fri Apr 30, 09:45 PM

Stanford QB Davis Mills was selected by the Houston Texans with the 67th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Mills only played in 11 games at Stanford, so he's raw in terms of experience. He has athleticism but medical checks had to be a concern due to multiple knee injuries in college. Mills projects as a developmental quarterback.

  Texans | GM mum on Deshaun Watson    Fri Apr 16, 12:35 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson is currently facing more than 20 civil lawsuits, but general manager Nick Caserio is refusing to get into specifics on the issue, Watson's future or the team's possible contingency plans at quarterback. 'I know (owner) Cal (McNair) ... put a letter out a few weeks ago, just relative to the organizational stance, relative to where we are. So I don't have anything to add other than it's a legal process,' Caserio said Friday, April 16 in a pre-draft news conference. 'We're respectful of the legal process and where that is. So we're focused on today. We're focused on getting ready for the offseason program and getting ready for the draft. So that's where our focus is.'

Footballguys view: The Texans will trade Watson when they can. Watson's legal proceedings need to be resolved before any team out there is going to give up likely still a significant haul for the star quarterback. We may not have any clarity on this situation any time soon, so Watson may not be dealt until before the start of the regular season. With the draft less than two weeks away it seems foolish to think he can be traded by then. This could go well into the summer.

  Texans | Deshaun Watson deal unlikely    Mon Apr 12, 09:24 AM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson is 'very unlikely' to be traded with the legal situation swirling around him, according to sources.

Footballguys view: It's still too soon to determine whether or not Watson is going to get traded. In fact, a trade by the draft has always been somewhat unrealistic. However, a trade before the start of the regular season could still be in the mix if the legal situation is cleared up.

  Texans | Alex Smith a possibility    Fri Apr 2, 01:35 PM

Free agent QB Alex Smith (Washington) is a candidate to sign with the Houston Texans if it becomes clear that QB Deshaun Watson won't be available for the 2021 season -- due to a trade, holdout or otherwise, according to a NFL Network report Friday, April 2.

Footballguys view: The Texans already added Tyrod Taylor (free agent) and Ryan Finley (trade) this offseason. Smith could compete with Taylor if Watson is not with the team anymore. Once Watson's off-field issues are cleared up, we should see the Texans make moves to trade him away.

Free-agent WR Chris Conley (Jaguars) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Houston Texans Monday, March 22, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Conley has speed but drops and concentration problems have plagued him as a pro. With Will Fuller moving on in free agency, the Texans needed more help at the position. Conley will be in the mix with guys like Donte Moncrief and Alex Erickson to establish a pecking order opposite/behind Brandin Cooks.

Free-agent RB Phillip Lindsay (Broncos) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $3.25 million with the Houston Texans on Friday, March 19.

Footballguys view: Lindsay now joins a backfield with Mark Ingram and David Johnson. After back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, Lindsay struggled in Pat Shurmur's offense with the Broncos in 2020. Now, he gets a fresh start and brings an explosive playmaking element to the position the Texans don't have. We'll see if he can win the starting job or at least a large role in what should be a RBBC for the Texans in 2021.

QB Ryan Finley on Friday, March 19, was acquired by the Houston Texans in a trade with the Cincinnati Bengals. In return, the teams will swap undisclosed late-round picks in the 2021 draft. Finley was going to be released prior to the deal.

Footballguys view: Finley is a big-bodied pocket passer who should be seen as a developmental quarterback. The Texans have Tyrod Taylor as their starter if Deshaun Watson is traded, stays away from the team or is suspended. Finley will continue to develop but with a new team.
