Houston Texans: 4 free agents who need to return in 2020
"The Houston Texans have some big decisions to make during the 2020 NFL offseason, and some of those decisions are about pending free agents."
Houston Texans general manager, head coach and all-around decision maker Bill O’Brien has some important decisions to make for the franchise this 2020 NFL offseason because each and every decision he’s about to make will affect the franchise in some way.
The Texans have many players who are pending free agents if not signed by March 18. Some of the players have been with the franchise for a number of years, and it could be their time to go. Others who were on the roster from this past season bring a different outlook compared to their free agent counterparts because they still bring high value to the team, and not only that, can contribute in a positive way moving forward.

Houston needs to do all that they can to become a Super Bowl champion one day, and why not make 2020 that season?
To do so, O’Brien doesn’t have much room for error. In fact, he has no room for error, because the Texans have to face six teams during the ’20 season who qualified for the playoffs this past season.
One of those teams will be the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, and we all know how that went in the regular season (a win by the Texans), but we also know how the Texans fared in the playoffs, too.
Looking ahead to free agency, there are players like Lamar Miller, Darren Fells and Johnathan Joseph who are very solid veterans, but are they players whom the Texans need to say thanks to and let them find employment elsewhere in the NFL?
Next will be highlighted four players who played for the team this past season who need a new contract to make plays and bring success to the Texans in 2020.
