Houston Texans Friday Roundup

We are getting closer and closer to the 2014 NFL Draft, but before we look forward to that event, let’s take a look at some former Houston Texans players and where they will be playing next season.

First off, we have former Texans tight end Owen Daniels agreeing to a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens.

ESPN wrote about the deal:

“A two-time Pro Bowler, Daniels is expected to back up Dennis Pitta and play a significant role in the Ravens’ two tight end packages.”

Remember, Gary Kubiak, the former Texans head coach, is now the offensive coordinator for the Ravens. They should make a decent combo for at least next season.

The biggest question for Daniels is if he can stay healthy.


CSN Houston has an article about Danieal Manning signing with the Cincinnati Bengals, where he joins former Texans assistant coach Vance Joseph.

The article states:

“Manning, 31, was released on Monday after the Texans asked him to take a pay cut. He was set to have a $6 million cap hit and a $4.5 million base salary in 2014. The Texans elected to save the $4.5 million in cap room.”

I don’t believe the Texans will miss Manning that much, especially with the recent signing of Chris Clemons.


• Here is an article about if Jadeveon Clowney can play a “McGinest” role for the Texans.

The article states:

“After Jadeveon Clowney wowed onlookers with a ‘phenomenal’ pro day workout, he told assembled reporters he would make the Houston Texans ‘miserable’ if they pass on him at No. 1 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft.”

That statement is true as Clowney is probably the best talent in the draft
