Texans waived QB Stephen Morris.

A former UDFA out of Miami, Morris has bounced around the league, but he has never shown the ability to stick on a regular-season roster. If he is signed before Week 1, it will only be as a camp arm.
Aug 16 - 9:30 AM

Free agent Ks Giorgio Tavecchio and Nick Rose worked out for the Texans.

Tavecchio was cut by the Raiders earlier this month after making just 16-of-21 field goals last season. He has a big leg but needs to be more accurate. Ka'imi Fairbairn is the Texans' current kicker.
Aug 15 - 2:08 PM

Texans signed WR Quan Bray.

Bray's agency, Universal Sports Management, announced the signing via Twitter. He was the Colts' primary punt returner in the nine games he was healthy for last season, finishing 520 total return yards. He'll serve as special teams depth in Houston.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Jadeveon Clowney is still working to get back into football shape.

"When we feel like he’s in football shape, we’ll put him on the field," O'Brien continued. Clowney has participated in some team drills but has done most of his work on the sidelines. The Houston Chronicle recently reported the team remains "confident" he will be ready for Week 1. The Texans would be wise to withhold both Clowney and J.J. Watt from all preseason games to ensure both are ready to go once the regular season begins.
Aug 5 - 4:11 PM

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said RB D'Onta Foreman (Achilles, active/PUP) is "heading in the right direction".

Though it's a vague update, it's the first positive note on Foreman's potential availability in Week 1. He remains on the active/PUP list and rehabbing following a torn Achilles suffered last November. Lamar Miller stands to benefit immensely if Foreman is out or limited to start the season.
Aug 4 - 1:12 PM

Texans released OG Jeff Allen with an injury settlement.

He only lasted two years in Houston after landing a four-year, $28 million free agent deal in 2016. Allen was ineffective over 12 starts last season (10 at right guard and two at left tackle), earning PFF's No. 72 grade out of 80 qualifiers at guard. The 28-year-old suffered a concussion at the end of last season and was placed on Houston's reserve/PUP list back in May. With Allen gone, the Texans will move forward with Zach Fulton and Senio Kelemete as their starting guards.
Jul 13 - 4:33 PM

Lamar Miller said he'd be open to the Texans signing free agent Adrian Peterson.

"It would be good to have him join us, just his leadership, seeing the things he’s done in previous years, that I feel like I could probably learn from him," Miller said. "It would help us out as a team." Peterson has talked numerous times about his desire to play for Houston in his home state of Texas. However, the feeling hasn't seemed mutual with the Texans having Miller and D'Onta Foreman on top of recently re-signing Alfred Blue. Peterson is going to have to wait.

Free agent Adrian Peterson told ESPN's NFL Live that the Texans are on his radar as a potential landing spot.

This doesn't mean the interest is mutual, of course. "Obviously I’ve mentioned Houston a couple of times," Peterson said. "I feel like Green Bay wouldn’t be a bad look as well. Carolina. There’s some options out there. You know Miami. Down there in [Los Angeles]. That would be a nice look, too, with Todd Gurley." Peterson turned 33 in March. He has made no known offseason visits.
May 28 - 3:58 PM

Texans RB D'Onta Foreman could begin the season on the reserve/PUP list.

That would make him unavailable for the team's first six regular season games. Foreman tore his Achilles in November but has since been setback-free and rumored to be ready for Week 1. A healthy preseason would not only prove his readiness for the regular season, it could also allow Foreman to open 2018 in a starting role over teammate Lamar Miller.
Apr 21 - 10:33 AM

Cardinals signed CB Marcus Williams, formerly of the Texans, to a one-year contract.

Williams logged 18 tackles and one interception over 185 defensive snaps between the Jets and Texans last season. He's just a depth signing for Arizona.
Apr 19 - 1:28 PM

According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans haven't "closed the door" on re-signing free agent Alfred Blue.

Blue has drawn interest from a few other teams including the Steelers, but remains on the market. The 26-year-old only played 156 snaps on offense last season but could make sense as an insurance policy for Houston with D'Onta Foreman still rehabbing a torn Achilles.
Apr 17 - 4:09 PM

Texans released OT Derek Newton.

Newton devastatingly ruptured both of his patellar tendons in 2016 and spent all of last year on the PUP list. He was apparently nearing a return, however, with USA Today's Mike Jones reporting Newton was cleared to work out during the offseason program. That makes the decision to cut him interesting, especially since he was due a $500,000 roster bonus back on April 1. Houston reportedly has not paid that bonus as of now, but Newton will file a grievance.
Apr 12 - 11:28 AM

Titans signed OG Xavier Su'a-Filo, formerly of the Texans.

Su'a-Filo was the Texans' starting left guard the past two seasons, though he was a major liability. He will be reuniting with Mike Vrabel in Tennessee but as a reserve. He joins recent signee Kevin Pamphile as another depth option behind Quinton Spain and Josh Kline.
Mar 27 - 4:50 PM

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports the Texans are "seriously interested" in free agent DB Tyrann Mathieu.

Mathieu would be a big get for the Texans, who featured one of the league's worst secondaries last year. Houston already made a splash by poaching Aaron Colvin from Jacksonville and can go for the jugular by reeling in Mathieu. Still just 25, the Honey Badger was let go by Arizona on Wednesday after refusing a pay cut. He was a first-team All-Pro as recently as 2015.
Mar 14 - 6:26 PM

Saints signed QB Tom Savage, formerly of the Texans, to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

Savage began last year as the Texans' starter but was quickly benched in favor of stud rookie Deshaun Watson. He got his job back when Watson went down with a torn ACL, but would later join Watson on IR after suffering a brutal concussion in Week 14. Arguably the league's slowest quarterback, it's a wonder that a team ever considered Savage a viable starter. All things considered, New Orleans isn't a bad landing spot for the 27-year-old, who now gets a cushy gig as the clipboard holder for future Hall of Famer Drew Brees.
Mar 14 - 5:54 PM

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports free agent CB E.J. Gaines is on the Texans' "radar."

The Texans have already been linked to fellow free agent Malcolm Butler on Monday, and Houston was mentioned as a possibility for Trumaine Johnson by CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora on Sunday. It's clear the Texans want to upgrade their secondary. Gaines just turned 26 but has health questions.
Mar 12 - 6:30 PM

NBC Boston reports the Texans have "reached out" to free agent Malcolm Butler.

Early interest in Butler has reportedly been robust, but the Texans are the only team to be publicly linked. Butler will be moving on from New England.
Mar 12 - 2:15 PM

NBC Boston's Michael Giardi reports interest in free agent Nate Solder is "off the charts," and that the Texans and Broncos appear to be "at the head of the class."

The MMQB's Peter King reported earlier Monday Houston is expected to be "all over" Solder. The Texans have a glaring need at left tackle after trading Duane Brown last season.
Mar 12 - 1:59 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Texans are the "favorites" for free agent OL Zach Fulton.

Rapoport adds Fulton is expected to land more than $7 million per year to be the Texans' center. Houston really needs more help at guard, where Fulton played for the Chiefs, but perhaps they plan to move 2016 second-round C Nick Martin. Houston also needs help at tackle.
Mar 12 - 12:50 PM

MMQB's Peter King believes the Texans will be "all over" free agent LT Nate Solder.

Offensive line is Houston's biggest need, and getting Solder to fill the gap at left tackle would allow them to move 2017 fourth-rounder Julie'n Davenport to the right side. Solder will have no shortage of suitors, however, including the Patriots. Solder is expected to command at least $12 million per year on his next deal.
