The 2015 NFL offseason marked the departure of wide receiver Andre Johnson from the Houston Texans. He ended his Texans career with over 13,000 receiving yards, as the teams most prolific offensive player, and was labeled by many as the best Texan of all time.

To be fair, the Texans are the NFL team with the least history, as they’ve only been in existence since 2002. However, in their 12 year history, Houston has seen some excellent players, and I decided to take a look at my list of the top 5 Texans of all time on the offensive side of the ball.

Kris Brown – Kicker – 2002-2009
The kicker may not be the flashiest player on the field, but to leave Kris Brown off the list would be a crime. He’s the Texans leading scorer by almost 300 points, and was a consistent fixture through most of the team’s first decade.
When Brown was replaced in 2010 in favor of kicker Neil Rackers, he was the last remaining player of the inaugural 2002 Houston Texans football team.
With the team’s many struggles on the offensive side of the ball over the years, the team knew they had a solid starting kicker who would be sure to get them a few points every game.
