Good morning! Sit back, relax and enjoy your daily dose of Houston Texans news.

I’m not sure I’m buying the report that the Texans want to trade for New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler.

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

Houston Texans Free Agency: Pursue CB Brandon Flowers? [House of Houston – Brian K. Patterson]

Flowers just turned 31 years-old and  had a Pro Football Focus  grade of 76.7 in 2016. Not bad, but not sure it’s good enough to replace A.J. Bouye.

Assessing The Damage Of the Texans Free Agency Losses [Houston Press – Sean Pendergast]

The damage isn’t that bad.  Quintin Demps had a great season, but I would be surprised if he has a year in 2017 like he did in 2016.

A.J. Bouye is a good player but the Texans can easily replace him in the draft.

John Simon is a good player, not a great one.  Houston will be fine.
