The 2013 free agent market has hit a standstill and veteran players are looking for work, and the majority of the deals on the table are for one year. With plenty of free agents still available, we looked at who could come in on short contracts and provide some help for the coming season.
There is still work to do but the Texans can still find some quality help to add to the 2013 NFL roster. Some may be up there in age, but a one or two year deal would not be a bad investment for a team looking to make it past the divisional round.
LaRod Stephens-Howling, Runningback, 5-7, 185 lbs.
A smaller back, but Stephens-Howling is another running back that can spot fill with carries when needed, but more importantly return kicks when needed. He has shown he can provide explosive plays and really does well catching the ball out of the backfield. He can also be a special team coverage player and showed he can do it despite his smaller size. A complete player who can do it all in ever...

Going into this years off season the Houston Texans knew that there would be a chance they’d lose some players that had been with the team for a long time. Both S Glover Quin and OLB Connor Barwin were both starters on defense and it was thought the Texans would keep at least one of them. As it turned out they didn’t keep either and also lost another player that started on the...
Defensive end J.J. Watt told Texans All Access on HoustonTexans.com that he played injured throughout the 2012 season after dislocating his elbow in the preseason.
“In the beginning, it definitely affected me,” Watt said. “All the ligaments in there were torn, they were all gone, so they had to have time to recover and regroup. So obviously, I wasn’t at full strength. The...
Before the mass critics come out and say this will never happen, we tend to agree, but we are not discussing if the trade up for a prospect would happen. What we are looking at are the two players in our minds, one from offense and another from defense, who are worth trading up for the Houston Texans.
Both these players, whichever could be traded up for, could give the Texans a...

The loss of Quin IMO was the one that hurt the most but with the addition of Ed Reed it shouldn’t be that big of a loss. The addition of Lechlar and Greg Jones are great to fill team needs. 1st Round 27th pick: Justin Hunter, WR, Tennessee When deciding a WR for this pick I had...
