Rob Housler, Tight End, 27 Years Old

Rob Housler has played his whole career for the Arizona Cardinals and looked poised for a big season in 2014 after posting 39 receptions in 2013 and 45 the year before. He also had over 400 yards in each of those seasons.

Something just didn’t click last year though, as Housler managed only nine catches for 129 yards despite playing 15 games and starting seven of those. The Texas born product has never been much of a red zone threat however, as he has only one career touchdown.

Another knock on Housler is that his blocking is less than spectacular to say the least. What he is able to boast is above average speed for the tight end position. His upside could prove to be an upgrade at a position which was nearly non-existent for Houston in 2014.
