    You guys realize that going on and on about it is worse than the comment that started it, right? One sentence, with 4 words in it, and y'all have gone on for 12 posts (by my count) about it already. You don't have to respond to every ******* post ever made. You can let things go every once in a while.

    Or you can go on and on about it for another 3 pages, who ******* cares anymore, right?

    Yesterday was an offense kicking the tires workout day. The Texans worked out former Los Angeles Rams tight end Keenen Brown (Texas State, Alief Taylor) along with former Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Elijah Nkansah (who they actually ended up signing to the PS), offensive tackle Paul Adams and center Casey Dunn.

    Paul Adams is a rookie and several on this board had eyes on him before the draft.
    Be interesting to see if he stays and makes a game day squad.
    Not sure if he was drafted or not.

    Carries by those 10:

    1. Carson - 48
    2. McCaffery - 47
    3. Da. Johnson - 42
    4. Chubb - 39
    5. Mack - 38
    6. Sanders - 36
    7. Ekeler - 30
    8. McCoy - 28
    9. Hyde - 27
    10. Duke - 14

    Should also be noted that 40 of that 126 for Duke came on a backwards swing pass last game.

    Like I said elsewhere, something actually works, let's not use it much. That's OB's offense.

    Since the Texans think signing 40 yr olds is a good idea I wonder what Darelle Revis is doing nowadays. Or someone that can play above average CB. Having 5 safeties is cool too I guess.

    Houston Texans Defense Shutting Down Tight Ends Early in the 2019 Season


    The Houston Texans wanted to improve their defense covering tight ends in 2019 and it is off to a solid start.

    The Houston Texans' defense has surprisingly had some positive returns this season. They are currently tied with a franchise record for most sacks through four games with 13, but another key stat that should not be lost is how well they are defending opposing tight ends.

    The Texans signed free agent safety Tashaun Gipson who is known for his ability to control the tight end position in the passing game. Through the first quarter of the season, the Texans defense has flipped an issue they had last season.

    In 2018, the Texans could not stop the tight end position giving up 90 receptions for 1,013 yards and eight touchdowns averaging 11.3 yards per catch. Tight ends caught 75% of their passes last season.


    The Texans were one of nine teams in the NFL in 2018 to give up over 1,000 receiving yards to the tight end position. The Texans also ranked fourth in most touchdowns given up last season in the NFL with eight.


    [​IMG]

    In the first four games of the 2018 season, the Texans surrendered 20 receptions for 259 yards (12.9 yards per catch) and two touchdowns.


    This season the Texans defense has been a different group versus the tight end group to start the year. They have limited tight ends to 13 receptions for 95 yards (7.3 yards per completion) for zero touchdowns.

    The Tight Ends vs. the Texans (4 Games)

    New Orleans Saints


    Jared Cook: 2 receptions for 37 yards

    Josh Hill: 1 reception for -2 yards

    Jacksonville Jaguars

    James O'Shaughnessy: 4 receptions for 28 yards

    Geoff Swaim: 3 receptions for 14 yards

    Los Angeles Chargers

    Lance Kendricks: 1 reception for 13 yards

    Carolina Panthers

    Greg Olsen: 2 receptions for 5 yards

    I hadn't read your links & I know we beefed up the Safety position. But man... Zach Cunningham has been putting in some work in coverage.

    I'm wondering with Mercilus moving back to rush end, that's allowed Cunningham on the field more often & doing a better job in coverage.

    Don't the Texans have some starting in 2022? And they need TE's... Texans have a couple extra of those don't they?
