The Houston Texans news is they have made interesting decisions this offseason.

So exactly how do you feel about the decisions made by the Houston Texans front office and all of the Texans news happening this offseason? Some of the decisions have been great, some not so much, but all in all the Texans have made those final decisions, and we don’t have to agree with all of them, either.

For example, no longer having DeAndre Hopkins on the roster isn’t one of the best decisions made this offseason. Each day for the Texans is most likely a stressful 24 hours of decision-making by General Manager Bill O’Brien — as that appointment was another important decision made by the front office this offseason. There is also the fact that some of Texans’ decisions made will affect the play of some of the very best players on the roster, including J.J. Watt and Deshaun Watson.

Sure, the Texans news is they are reigning back-to-back AFC South champions, and even won a playoff game a season ago, but as teams around them in the division have made some big changes as well, winning this season isn’t a guarantee.

Don’t get me wrong, some of Texans news on the decisions made to add players to the roster have been exciting. For example, if wide receiver Brandin Cooks is able to stay on the field in 2020, he’ll produce for the franchise, but he did cost the Texans a second-round pick, so there are some high expectations for him.

There is also the addition of David Johnson at running back from the trade of the aforementioned Hopkins. There are other decisions made by the GM O’Brien that have left some thoughts rolling around. For example, was enough done for the defense to improve, or did the Texans do enough for the defensive line, and were most of the front office choices made the right call?

The remainder of the offseason needs to focus on finding the final pieces to the Texans’ puzzle for the 2020 season, but next are four offseason decisions that should be described as the worst up to this point near mid-June.
