TEXANS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Houston Texans forgotten star, poised for a comeback year in 2015

The Texans made some big offseason moves on the defensive side of the ball, including former All-Pro lineman Vince Wilfork. He will definitely be a help anchoring down the middle of the line, and free up some double teams for JJ Watt. As big of an addition as Wilfork may be, and including getting Jadeveon Clowney back from knee surgery, the biggest returning factor is that of Brian...

Houston's Ballentine out to prove he's more than 'Mr. Irrelevant'

Houston Texans safety Lonnie Ballentine has already made a name for himself in NFL circles. It's just not the one he wants. Ballantine was taken with the No. 256 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, earning him the annual "Mr. Irrelevant" title given to last player selected each year. But before Ballentine had a chance to prove he belonged in the NFL, his rookie season was cut short. The...

Jadeveon Clowney must balance expectations in recovery

There’s no doubt that the Houston Texans want to see Jadeveon Clowney live up to his status as their No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL draft. But they also likely want the linebacker to do that as soon as possible. And former NFL linebacker Brady Poppinga said in his latest Football By Football column that that’s exactly where Clowney could run into some trouble. While it’s certainly...

The trio of backs that make up the Houston Texans running game

Let’s face it, Arian Foster isn’t getting any younger, and his body will not magically be revived into 2010-form when he led the league with over 1600 yards rushing. For the majority of the Kubiak era, running the ball was the staple for success of the entire Texans offense. At its peak, the zone-read style opened up the field for play action, and counters all day. Those days...
