The Houston Texans are slowly turning into the southern version of the Green Bay Packers.
Okay, so not exactly. However, the Houston Texans seem to like former Packers players joining the roster in free agency. The Houston Texans have signed Isaac Yiadom, who spent last year with the Packers after being traded from the New York Giants.
Yiadom has been a journeyman in the league since being drafted in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. In 2021, Yiadom played in all 16 games but only started one. He had ten total tackles, with nine of them being solo tackles.
When it came to coverage, he allowed an 85.7% completion percentage when targeted, resulting in 110 yards and zero touchdowns last year. Even though he played less than he has in the three previous seasons, it was Yiadom’s worst season as he allowed an average of 18.3 yards per completion, according to Pro Football Reference.
So it’s safe to say that this isn’t going to be a starting quarterback for the Houston Texans, but it’s a death piece that there could be some growth within Lovie Smith’s System.
Isaac Yiadom is nothing but a depth signing for the Houston Texans
Yiadom does have hope to improve his skills, and maybe he just needs the right regime. It appears that Packers fans weren’t really happy with him last year, so we’ll see how he does in a new setting.
Maybe the veterans like Desmond King and M.J. Stewart can help him in his learning process as he continues to attempt to get better in his career.
