Roster still a work in progress by Marc Vandermeer, Houstontexans.com
"Last week’s free agent shopping haul gave the Texans a huge lift on the way to possibly improving their record and taking a step closer to their ultimate goal. But the cake is not ready to go into the oven yet. There are still some very important items to throw into the mix.Let’s take a peak at some position groups that will get attention."
Closer look at Lamar Miller by Partick Starr, State of the Texans
"Miller was grossly underused and underutilized by the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins made it clear that they had little clue on how to use the speedy back. Joe Philbin and then offensive coordinator Bill Lazor thought Miller was no more than just a back who primarily worked out of the gun, with a small package of plays, while Dan Campbell and his offensive coordinator Zac Taylor almost stubbornly made Miller learn how to operate in-between the tackles when he took over as the head coach. Campbell lined Miller up in single back sets and gave him the ball to run inside the tackles."
Rebuilding the offense by Sam Weaver, NFL Mocks
"After struggling with poor quarterback play and an injury-plagued backfield, Houston was staring down the barrel of another inconsistent season. In 2015, the Texans made the playoffs despite a myriad of different quarterbacks taking the helm, largely due to the hard work of a promising defense. With pressure on the front office to save a drowning offense, Houston jumped at the opportunity to solve many of their most pressing issues."
