UPDATE: After the Texans “Secret Workout” today with Bryant Johnson the team agreed to terms with the free agent wide receiver. Houston must be more desperate for a 4th and 5th wide receiver than we originally anticipated.
Today on Sports Radio 610 AM Houston, Coach Gary Kubiak admitted to having a wide receiver in town for a workout with the Texans. “Yeah, we had a guy in here today for a secret workout.” Coach Kubiak mentioned candidly when asked about the apparent workout.
It seems the Texans are concerned about the wide receiver position after Jacoby Jones. To the benefit of the younger wide receivers on the team, Kubiak does mention that the ball just hasn’t came in the young receivers direction much this preseason.
After a bit of reseasrch on twitter it wasn’t difficult to figure as to which receiver was in town for the per say, “secret workout”.
Sometime early this morning free agent wide receiver Bryant Johnson tweeted, “#HelloGoodMorning. At the airport (ATL) headed to Houston for a workout with the Texans”
Bryant Johnson was the 17th overall pick in the first round for the Arizona Cardinals in 2003. Johnson’s best year was arguably 2006 when the wide receiver played in all 16 games in which he snagged 40 catches for 740 and added four touchdowns.
Johnson had spent the last two seasons with the Detroit Lions where he had a total of 53 catches for 627 yards and threee touchdowns.
Guess the day and age of secrecy is well past us with todays vast platforms of social media in which constant communications is literally right at your hand.
