QB Matt Schaub and Houston Texans were sitting on top of the world close to end of the regular season. Then things suddenly changed, and they found themselves backing into the playoffs and walking into a another right cross from the New England Patriots, the team who started their demise in the first place.
The Houston Texans announced they have resigned outside linebacker DeLano Johnson who spent the entire 2012 season on the practice squad. Johnson came to Houston as an undrafted free agent from Bowie State and made an impression in training camp to make the practice squad.

Schaub threw for more than 4,000 yards this season and led the Texans to the AFC South championship. But he played poorly enough in the playoffs...
Hindsight is 20-20 and for the Houston Texans the 2012 cap situation put the team in some bad spots, and forced their hand to make some moves. We understand in a perfect world you want to keep everyone, but this is the NFL and there has to be moves made for the greater good of the organization.
We list the top five moves that if the Texans could re-do they would at least take a look...

Take a look at our biggest surprises of the 2012 season for the Texans.
It was pretty clear...
