The Houston Texans free agency period has not been the most exciting but they’ve signed guys that could provide a valuable impact to the team. There haven’t truly been any household names the team has signed but sometimes it’s not about that, it’s all about finding the right players that fit with the team’s mantra.
Besides, who knows what kind of money Jadeveon Clowney‘s contract will command? I understand that they have to be cautious with their spending, whether or not they decide to move forward with his $17 million franchise tag or hopefully achieve some savings for 2019 if a long-term pact is reached.
But since free agency opened some two weeks ago the team has signed seven guys to the roster. They are: Tashaun Gipson, Bradley Roby, Briean Boddy-Calhoun, A.J. McCarron, Matt Kalil and Darren Fells.
All of these men wield a ton of potential — some more than others — and if the cards are played right, they will flourish in their role with the Houston Texans.
The Houston Texans have been taking visits by various players and one interesting visit to note was when they brought offensive tackle Ryan Schraeder in for evaluation.
The 6-foot-7, 300-pound Schraeder had been drawing interest from both the Houston Texans and the Minnesota Vikings so there was some slight competition for his services. However, Schraeder left Houston without a deal and the Houston Texans decided to ink Kalil to a one-year deal.
