This offseason hasn’t been bad for the Houston Texans.
With the NFL offseason almost over, I guess it’s time to look back at how each and every team has done.
Sean Wagner-McGough of CBS Sports has released an NFL front office power rankings and the Texans come in at No. 27.
Here’s what Wagner-McGough wrote about the Texans:
"The Texans failed to sign Tony Romo. Then they made the same mistake as the Chiefs and Bears, mortgaging their future to trade up for a quarterback (Deshaun Watson). If you can’t already tell, I’m not a fan of selling draft assets all for the chance to draft a quarterback who might or might not develop into a NFL-caliber quarterback."
I have a hard time believing the Texans made a mistake by trading up for Watson when the rest of their roster is almost flawless.
Of course Houston still has a need at right tackle, but this year was not the time to draft an offensive tackle and they couldn’t’ afford to overpay for a free agent tackle.
The Texans simply couldn’t to go into this coming season with Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden as their only quarterbacks.

And when it comes to Tony Romo, it’s not like the Texans could force the Dallas Cowboys to release him sooner.
Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones got his way by pretty much forcing Romo to retire.
I don’t feel like the Texans have had a bad offseason at all. Yes they didn’t do anything in free agency, but they really didn’t have to.
The most important thing is that the Houston unloaded Brock Osweiler and acquired Watson.
