The Houston Texans news would be a better if they could add one player from each AFC South rival in 2020.

Think about this for a second: how fun would it be if the Houston Texans news headlines could read about them being allowed to take a player from each of their AFC South rivals and add them to their team for the 2020 NFL season?

It is all in good fun, but again, imagine how much better this franchise would be. Would that put them over the hump and make them a stronger Super Bowl contender? Would adding a player from the Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans and the Jacksonville Jaguars make them be a great team, and one that could actually have a chance to hang with the Kansas City Chiefs or Baltimore Ravens late in the playoffs?

One position we all know the Texans wouldn’t take from an opposing division rival is quarterback, as the Texans have the best quarterback in the AFC South, and that is Deshaun Watson. He’ll outperform Philip Rivers (Colts), Ryan Tannehill (Titans) and Gardner Minshew (Jaguars) this upcoming season, and most likely for many seasons to come.

There are some spots where the opponents have better players than Texans currently have at those positions, as there is just so much unknown with David Johnson as he tries his hand for year one with the Texans after spending his entire career with the Arizona Cardinals.

Also at wide receiver, veteran leadership is the name of the game with that roster, but injuries could hamper that group which has been put together this offseason with Will Fuller and Kenny Stills being joined by Randall Cobb and Brandin Cooks.

On defense, the Texans could use some additional depth in the secondary, but also adding to the interior defensive line might be something to think about as well. A team also can’t have too many pass rushers off the edge, so finding players there as well is something to think about.

Nonetheless, this is all for entertainment purposes and something to think about seriously as well, because who knows if any of these players could one day play for the Texans. Anything is possible in the league when six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady ends up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Next are the three players to take from an AFC rival and add to the Texans roster.
