Latest On Texans Free Agents

The Texans have a number of notable players hitting free agency, but it sounds like the front office has made re-signing Bradley Roby a priority. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports (via Twitter) that Houston will “do what they can” to keep many of their free agents, a grouping that’s “especially” led by the 28-year-old cornerback.

Roby inked a one-year, $10MM deal with the Texans last offseason, but he was limited to only 10 games (10 starts) during his first season in Houston. Roby finished the campaign having compiled 38 tackles, eight passes defended, two interceptions (including a pick-six), and one forced fumble.

On the other side of the ball, it sounds like the organization is hoping to retain veteran running back Carlos Hyde. However, as Wilson passes along, Hyde declined a contract offer from the organization and is set to hit free agency. The 29-year-old started 14 games and had his first career 1,000-yard season in 2019. Fellow running back Lamar Miller, who was sidelined with a torn ACL last year, will also be heading to free agency.

Wilson passes along updates on a number of other Texans free agents. The organization is hoping to re-sign running back/special teamer Taiwan Jones and linebackers Tyrell Adams, Dylan Cole and Barkevious Mingo. On the flip side, the organization isn’t expected to bring back safety Jahleel Addae.

  1. Understandable. This is Hyde’s last chance at a decent payday. He must take the best offer he can get with the most money guaranteed.

    After this contract, time will have run out on his career.

    Texans instead of paying Hyde Miller and Jones all at RB aswell as keeping Duke Johnson should look at alternatives.

    I’d suggest trading Will Fuller for David Johnson and a 5th round pick.

    Fuller would be a loss but we have Hopkins, Stills and Coutee plus resigning another back up WR wouldn’t be hard or expensive.
    Johnson who is a solid receiving RB would be a nice pick up and suit Watson. It would also allow the team to avoid paying all those other RBs and it means they could spend that money elsewhere like keeping Tunsil, Roby and maybe bringing in another player or two.

    Johnson is getting overpaid at about 14 ish mil, but next year that would decrease, Fuller is on 10 mil ish so it would cost you 4 mil more on the books but you’d save money by not having to pay Hyde Miller and Jones. Plus Fullers deal ends next season and you have to pay him anyways.
