Could a former rival of the Houston Texans make the roster of the Texans n 2014? That is what Mike Thomas is working on this training camp as he is now one of the wide receivers working for a spot on the Texans’ final roster.

An article on Ultimate Texans talks about how Thomas and how he is working to stay on the roster as the article says of the 5-8 receiver:

"“Thomas stayed on the field during a situational scrimmage Saturday, benefiting from the absence of injured No. 1 receiver Andre Johnson. Thomas is also up for the punt and kick return jobs, which are expected to fall to Martin, but O’Brien has declared publicly available.”"

Is Thomas the No. 3 wide receiver the Texans have been looking for?

He could be, as I see him battling with DeVier Posey for the third wide receiver spot. Also in that mix is Keshawn Martin, but if I were to pick their order of finish to the No. 3-5 WRs on the Texans it will be: Posey, Thomas and Martin.

What are your thoughts on Thomas? Are you excited to see him on the roster, and do you think he’ll make it once training camp and the preseason is all said and done?
