Good morning Houston! The weekend is here and we have plenty of Houston Texans news for you.

Would the Texans really take a linebacker in the first round? I hope not.

Texans owner Bob McNair knows he has Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones where he wants him.

Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes II models his game after Aaron Rodgers. I wonder if he can be as good.
