2024 NFL Offseason: Houston Texans

Houston Texans (Last Year: 10-7)

Season Summary:
The Texans were perhaps a year ahead of schedule where everyone expected them to be with a rookie quarterback and head coach combo. Nevertheless, they ended up winning their division and upsetting the Browns in the opening round of the playoffs. They eventually lost to the Ravens, but there’s no doubt that the future is bright in Houston.

Offseason Moves:
  • 49ers acquire DT Maliek Collins from Texans for 7th-round pick
  • Texans acquire RB Joe Mixon from Bengals for conditional 2024 7th-round pick

    Team Needs:
    1. Two Offensive Linemen: It became quite apparent during the playoff loss to Baltimore that Houston needs to improve its offensive line. Left guard and right tackle are the big issues, assuming that Juice Scruggs moves to center.

    2. Safety: The Texans had major problems defending deep passes because of poor safety play. This area must be upgraded.

    3. Defensive Tackle: Houston must address the trenches on the defensive side of the ball as well, especially if Sheldon Rankins walks away via free agency. Signed Folo Fatukasi and Denico Autry

    4. Defensive End: If Jonathan Greenard leaves via free agency, the Texans will have to replace him and his 12.5 sacks. Signed Danielle Hunter

    5. Cornerback: Steven Nelson is another key free agent who will have to be replaced or retained. Signed Jeff Okudah and C.J. Henderson

    6. Running Back: Is Devin Singletary the long-term answer at running back? Probably not, but he’s an impending free agent anyway. Traded for Joe Mixon

    7. Tight End: Dalton Schultz is set to enter free agency as well. Re-signed Dalton Schultz

    8. Kicker: Ka’imi Fairbairn has been a reliable kicker for the Texans, but his contract is set to expire. Re-signed Ka’imi Fairbairn

    9. Punter: Cameron Johnston is also an impending free agent. Signed Tommy Townsend
