The Houston Texans are bringing back a familiar face to their wide receiving corps.

Every March, NFL free agency takes the month by storm. Tons of transactions are taking place, with everyone talking about who got paid and if it was really worth the money. So the Houston Texans are busy during all of this commotion that they opted to have a little less change than others.

The Houston Texans are re-signing wide receiver Chris Moore on a one-year deal that is worth $1.187 million, with $1.047 million guaranteed and a signing bonus totaling $152,500.

Moore was phenomenal when he was targeted, as he caught 21 out of 22 passes thrown his way. Those 21 passes accumulated for 227 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games last season. Moore also had this incredible catch against the New England Patriots, which was one of the more memorable moments of the Texans’ 2021 season.

Chris Moore should be targeted “Moore” by the Houston Texans

It was an offense that was held captive by Tim Kelly, now a part of the Tennessee Titans. Kelly’s offense was addicted to the run, but the offensive line was just not good enough to make holes for the running backs that were behind them. Not to mention the offensive line was part of the reason for the historically bad offense Houston rolled out.

Moore is athletic, and this is an extremely cheap deal that can only benefit both parties if Moore improves this season. Pep Hamilton’s offense should be able to feed the ball to nearly all of the receivers on the depth chart.

Pair him with a true WR2, and the Texans could have a trio of weapons to attack opposing defenses. This could be a fun group to watch and a very sneaky fantasy football pick for those in deeper leagues.
