Joe Schobert made a name for himself in Cleveland before signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2020 off-season. Schobert’s increase in production made him one of the more sought after linebackers in free agency and the Jaguars ended up getting him.

Following an incredible season with the Jaguars, they decided to trade him away to the Pittsburgh Steelers. That move, although it seemed like a good move at the time, turned out to be rather depressing for Steelers fans.

He didn’t exactly bounce back after being traded away and now he’s struggling to find a job. But the Texans could be a potential suitor for him.

The Texans linebacker group is not great on paper, and I don’t think that’ll change during the season. They have many names on their roster that really should not be on a NFL roster. If the Texans were to go after Schobert, they would be getting a sure-fire, starting caliber linebacker.
