Reviewing Houston Texans 2019 offseason.
The Houston Texans’ offseason didn’t have the same amount of fireworks they had in their previous offseason when they signed Pro Bowl safety Tyrann Mathieu after being released from the Arizona Cardinals. Texans added Bradley Roby, Tashaun Gipson, Jahleel Addae, Briean Boddy-Calhoun, Matt Kalil, A.J. McCarron, Darren Fells, and Taiwan Jones in free agency.
Texans also made other additions through the NFL Draft by selecting Tytus Howard, Lonnie Johnson, Max Scharping, Kahale Warring, Charles Omenihu, Xavier Crawford, and Cullen Gillaspia. The front office re-signed Joe Webb, Brandon Dunn, Angelo Blackson, Brennan Scarlett, Joel Heath, Ka’imi Fairbairn, and Seantrel Henderson through free agency.
Edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney is expected to play with the Texans on a one year deal after both parties were unable to work out a long term extension after he was franchise tagged. The only remaining free agents that played for the Texans in 2018 are Brandon Weeden, Brian Peters, Shareece Wright, and Josh Keyes.
Texans lost Christian Covington, Kareem Jackson, Kayvon Webster, Kendall Lamm, Alfred Blue, and Mathieu in free agency meanwhile waiving Ryan Griffin, Demaryius Thomas, and Kevin Johnson. Veteran safety Andre Hal also decided to call it a career after being a ball-hawking defensive back in the Texans secondary.
With training camp starting this week, Texans addressed positions of weakness such as their cornerback and offensive tackle positions. However, they ultimately failed to retain any of their marquee free agents with Jackson and Mathieu signing elsewhere, and unable to extend Clowney to a long term deal.
