Sometimes the best part of the offseason for a football fan is seeing all the positive changes that your team has made to try and improve their weaknesses. For the Texans there is plenty of change to be excited about, and one area which has seen a lot of that change was the focus of our last positional breakdown, the wide receiver group.

Next up in this series is an area that was a real weakness for the Texans in 2014, and I was excited to see how the team would address the area. Unfortunately, this may be the position with the least amount of change, if any, from last season.
The Houston Texans tight ends were beyond bad last season. As a group, the three tight ends from 2014, Garrett Graham, C.J. Fiedorowicz, and Ryan Griffin combined for an underwhelming 32 completions for 316 yards and three touchdowns. To put that into perspective, defensive end J.J. Watt lined up at tight end at times and he wound up with three touchdown catches himself.
Without much change to the roster the only hope to see any change would be banking on one or more of these guys to develop dramatically this season.
