    ...player in their prime for this season only, which one would you bring back?

    Cannot be any player currently on the team like Watt. Can also be any player who ever put on a Texans uniform, so Ed Reed counts. Also, consider the team as is in its current state and draft picks they have upcoming.




    For me, even though we have talent at the position I have to go with Andre. Just too dominant of a player and with Watson making plays off schedule, Hopkins and
    Fuller drawing coverage prime Dre might rewrite the history books.

    Duane Brown LT, Andre Johnson WR and Arian Foster RB.
    With an offense like that, this would be a fun team to watch.

    A healthy one could change the whole of Texans history.

    An Aaron Glenn or a Jamie Sharper could sure help this team too.

    Either AJ or Arian Foster.

    But lean toward AJ to see the magic between him and Watson.

    Honorable mentions would be Seth Payne and DeMeco Ryans.

    If it's in the players prime(not just as a Texan) then Bosseli or Reed would be hard to beat. Would fill a big hole either way

    If it's as a Texans player it would have to be AJ, only HOF caliber player the Texans have had

    Forgot about Boselli. Yeah, prime healthy Boselli was an awesome player and it would help shore up the OL.

    Thought about Reed too. Just from a talent perspective alone. Him and honey badger could be really special.

    A prime Owen Daniels would sure be a nice answer to the TE situation.

    They passed on Jason Witten to land Bennie with no jets .

    Seth Wand or Victor Riley are my choices .

    I would go with Arian. Pair him with Watson what would defenses do? Couldn’t defend that. Especially with the aerial attack we had last year with bombs to Fuller and Hopkins.
