Texans Work Out WR Rashad Greene

Wideout Rashad Greene worked out for the Texans this week, reports Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle (via Twitter). The workout reportedly went well, but a deal isn’t imminent.

After earning a pair of first-team All-ACC nods during his stint with Florida State, Greene was selected by the Jaguars in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. Greene proceeded to play the next four seasons in Jacksonville, including a rookie campaign where he hauled in 19 catches and returned 18 punts. The wideout’s role was reduced in 2016, and he ended up spending the entire 2017 campaign on the injured reserve.

After being released and re-signed prior to the 2018 season, the 26-year-old went on to appear in eight games. He hauled in six catches for 60 yards, but he also had a pair of fumbles on offense, an issue he’s battled since his rookie season. Greene continued to contribute on special teams in 2018, returning seven kicks and punts.

The Texans haven’t added any noteworthy wideouts this offseason, and they watched as veteran Demaryius Thomas left for the Patriots. The team is presumably seeking some additional depth behind their top-three of DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller, and Keke Coutee.
