Five Texans players who might be finished in Houston
With the NFL Combine in full swing, here is a look at five players who might have played their final game with the Houston Texans.
The playoff letdown by the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round is in the rearview mirror, and the NFL Combine is super busy with measurements and 40-yard dash times, but looking at NFL free agency, there is a lot on the plate for the Texans as they work on figuring out which players they want to keep.
One free agent whom I don’t see returning is Lamar Miller, as the running back missed all this past season with an ACL injury suffered in the preseason. Miller did well in his time with the Houston Texans, but with his age and coming off the injury, it doesn’t seem like something the Texans should be too interested in this offseason, but more on him later.

It is also evident the Texans have some team needs on the roster too, especially on defense as they have to add to the pass rush with an player off the edge, cornerback needs an upgrade and running back needs to be addressed as well.
The team is officially run by Bill O’Brien as he was named the general manager of the team, though he made the decisions in an interim role this past season after Brian Gaine was released from his GM duties last offseason.
Now the decisions in free agency are more important than ever for the Texans because there are a lot of jobs on the line for this franchise to not only have continued success, but to have success to where the Texans can reach the AFC Championship game.
