Houston Texans continue to add talent to their group of wide receivers ahead of their offseason activities.

The Houston Texans continue to build their roster and add players to their team ahead as they begin to transition to their organized team activities. Texans announced that have signed undrafted free agent wide receiver, Floyd Allen.

He joined the Texans and formed part of the Texans rookie minicamp on a tryout basis after playing the latter part of his collegiate football with Ole Miss. Allen played in six games with the Rebels, he finished the 2018 season with four receptions for 44 yards and playing most of his snaps on special teams. He was signed to the 90 man roster along with veteran tight end Ryan Griffin being waived.

The wide receiver group is beginning to get crowded and filled with competition towards the bottom portion of the depth chart for the final spots on the roster. The top of the group is solidified with DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, and Keke Coutee, but the other two slots are up for grabs.

Vyncint Smith and DeAndre Carter were the receivers who completed the bottom portion of the Texans wide receiver group, but they’ll have to continue to improve to keep their roster spot for the upcoming 2019 season.

Outside of Allen, the Texans have Johnnie Dixon, Tyron Johnson, Stephen Louis, Steven Mitchell, Jester Weah, and Isaac Whitney all competing for the opportunity to earn one of the limited and coveted spots in the receiver group.
