2. Tight End
Just copy and paste everything anybody said about the Texans tight ends last offseason to this one. After watching the trio of Garrett Graham, C.J. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin underwhelm in 2014, the Texans rolled them out again for 2015.
Griffin actually improved, but missed a chunk of time due to injury. Graham regressed badly and Fiedorowicz was pretty much the same, which meant he might as well not have been there.
There was talk all offseason about how much the second-year player had improved, and technically he did. However, his improvement led to just 17 receptions for 197 yards and one score. Griffin played in just nine games and topped him with 20 receptions for 251 yards and two touchdowns.
Still, the three men aren’t enough and something has to be done after two straight years of mediocrity. Griffin could be a useful piece, but not necessarily as a primary starter. Graham is apparently done as he absolutely disappeared at season’s end despite being healthy, and Fiedorowicz has youth on his side, so there is still some hope.
Houston can hope those two continue to develop, but they need to make a move regardless. Someone with more upside has to be brought in and with holes in other spots, free agency is the perfect option to find that someone at tight end.
