Good morning Houston! It’s finally the weekend and we have plenty of Houston Texans news for you.

The Texans were  quiet in free agency on Friday.  But they did lose linebacker John Simon to the Indianapolis Colts.

Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins threw some shade at Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey.

There’s a report that FOX Sports wants to hire Tony Romo and that the Broncos may not even pursue him if he ends up becoming a free agent.

Here is some more Texans’ news from around the web:
