By Randy Gurzi
As we quickly approach the start of training camp, we break down the Houston Texans roster by position, this time with the tight ends
With the draft in the rearview mirror and mini-camps getting under way, the 2016 NFL season feels closer than ever. For fans of the Houston Texans, there’s plenty of reason to be excited about the start of this coming season.
To help us all get in the spirit, we will begin to break down the 2016 version of your Texans, and today the tight end position gets it’s turn in the spotlight.
The tight end position is one that has been in flux ever since Bill O’Brien became head coach in 2014. After arriving on scene, the former Penn State coach released starter Owen Daniels, and turned the starting spot over to Garrett Graham.

Graham had a solid season the year before, but when he became the full-time starter, things fell apart for him. After just 18 catches in 2014, Graham recorded just four this past season and has since been released.
Once again the Texans avoided addressing this position of need in the draft, and will rely on veteran players to step up, or hope an undrafted kid can emerge unexpectedly.
So without any further ado, let’s jump into the tight end position for the Houston Texans!
