The Houston Texans have retired players who could contribute in 2020.

With the NFL and the Houston Texans being in the offseason, let’s have a little fun, not be as serious, but still think about which retired players could contribute to the 2020 Texans team. Nobody that is about to be listed has reached 40 years old yet, and nobody on this list would be expected to be a starter on the roster, either.

This list has the oldest player being 37 years old, and there is currently a player in the league at his position that is nearing 39 years old. Every player that is about to be listed had a successful career in professional football, and they at one time played for the Texans, with one playing his entire career on the Houston defense. In fact, that player currently works with the Texans to this day.

The Houston Texans players listed wouldn’t be the same player they were in their prime. They are experienced, and they’ve not been retired too long, so they are most likely still in good shape, or at least they can build back up with the proper time.

Again, this list isn’t full of players who would make the Pro Bowl or lead the Houston Texans to many playoff wins, but they could be on the roster and play a role within the lineup to help the Texans become a better team.

There are no quarterbacks on this list, because let’s be honest, none of us want to see Brock Osweiler on the Houston Texans roster anytime soon. Spoiler alert, former No. 1 overall pick David Carr is nearing 40 years old and has a nice job as an analyst on the NFL Network, so he’s not on this list.

All of this is for some entertainment, to remember past players, and to just have some fun. Next are four players who could contribute to the Texans for the 2020 roster if they were to ever come out of retirement.
