The Houston Texans kicked the tires on free agent Javontee Herndon.

We mentioned on Saturday that there’s a report out that the Texans will be signing free agent wide receiver Dres Anderson and linebacker Sio Moore after cutting both wide receiver Keith Mumphrey and linebacker Max Bullough.

It turns out that Anderson wasn’t the only wide receiver the Texans took a look at this past week.

Houston also worked out former San Diego Chargers wide receiver Javontee Herndon.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported the news on Friday on Twitter.

"Texans worked out former Chargers wide receiver Javontee Herndon today, according to a source."

Of course with the Texans already signing Anderson this likely means they won’t add Herndon, but things could always change as we get closer to training camp.

If the Texans end up losing a receiver to a serious injury this year, they at least know what Herndon looks like in person after working him out and can now gauge whether he would be a good fit for them.

The 24 year-old Herndon went undrafted in 2014 out of the University of Arkansas. He ended up signing with the San Diego Chargers and played with them from 2014-2016.

Herndon stands at 6-foot-1 and weighs 194 pounds.

Herndon has 24 receptions for 195 yards during his NFL career so far.
