Ayers was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft out of the University of Houston. He ended up catching six passes for 53 yards and one touchdown as a rookie, but was waived by the Steelers right before the start of this season.
Ayers caught 141 passes for 1,686 yards and 9 touchdowns during his college career.
Crockett was signed by the Green Bay Packers this past April after going undrafted out of Georgia Southern, but didn’t make their final roster. He recorded 28 receptions for 442 yards and 2 touchdowns during his college career.
Smith played his college ball at the University of Iowa and signed with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent in 2016, but was released in November of that year.
Smith was then released by the Colts this past August after they re-signed him during the offseason. He had a highly productive college career that included 102 receptions for 1,500 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Croom was signed by the Buffalo Bills this past spring as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Tennessee. He was then released during the summer and has been working out for teams ever since. He finished his college career with 60 receptions for 816 yards and 6 touchdowns.
Malleck played his college ball at Virginia Tech and caught 62 passes for 658 yards and 4 touchdowns during his time in Blacksburg.
Malleck has spent time with the New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens.
Wick went undrafted in 2016 out of Incarnate Ward and has spent time with the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers. He only has 2 receptions for 18 yards during his NFL career.
As of right now, the Texans haven’t signed anyone, but that could change at any point.
