Many players communicate on Twitter, so what is the Houston Texans news on the social media platform from current players?

The latest Houston Texans news consists of what are they going to do during the 2020 NFL Draft which is one week away, but if anything is certain it is Bill O’Brien an the rest of the Texans draft decision makers won’t be telling anyone their plans until the pick is made.

What about the players for the Texans? How are they handling the current state of things with football and non-football mandates and life situations. How are they preparing for the 2020 season, and what are they up to away from the football field?

That is the great thing about Twitter … many of the players let us all know a little more about them, as they share what’s on their mind, their hobbies away from the field, and what they are looking forward to once things return to a bit of normalcy.

The Houston Texans news shared on Twitter can make for some exciting times, or it can make for Texans news that none of us want to see as that was the case when the DeAndre Hopkins trade was announced.

That said, if Johnson is able to be a main focal point of the offense, and produce quality numbers around the thsi Texans team, that would be a great positive for all involved.
