The Houston Texans’ offseason of less is more hasn’t impressed NFL.com one bit, as they have the franchise ranked 32nd overall since the start of free agency.
Do I think the Texans are a Top 20 team? No, I don’t, but I think they’ve improved their franchise with their ability not to re-sign players than that of signing players for the sake of making waves in the offseason.
Elliott Harrison, the NFL Media analyst who came up with the power rankings, wrote about the 2-14 Texans on Wednesday:
“New head coach Bill O’Brien should get two to three years at the minimum to turn around his new team. There is no rush to get a quarterback now, or at least not with the first overall pick. Take the best player available and roll.”
I feel that having Bill O’Brien as the new head coach should automatically move them up from being the worst-ranked team in the NFL.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are 28th on the list, and this is just my opinion, I think the Washington Redskins are in worse shape than the Texans are.
This could all change once the NFL Draft takes place on May 8th, and the Texans somehow start rebuilding parts of their franchise that need remodeling.
I know last season was dreadful, and this offseason has been quiet for sure, but getting rid of some veterans and bringing in some new blood should in the long-term make them a better overall franchise, except the fact I wish they would have re-signed Ben Tate as one of the running backs, but that is an argument for another day.
