John McClain reports that the Houston Texans will not pursue a trade for Viking WR Percy Harvin or try to sign Mike Wallace during free agency.
Clearly, the Texans are still in need of a solid No. 2 receiver to pair with Andre Johnson who will be 32 at the start of the 2013 season. Both Harvin and Wallace could add a much needed explosive element to their passing attack, but they appear to have other plans.
Instead, McClain mentions that they’re focused on re-signing some of their core players like ILB Brian Cushing and DE Antonio Smith.
Cushing, 26, will be entering the final year of his rookie deal and is set to make $3.143 million in 2013. He unfortunately suffered a torn ACL back in October, but it’s safe to assume that the Texans view him as an integral part of their defense in the coming years.

Check out Houston Texans offensive tackle Duane Brown singing Goyte's hit song, "Somebody That I Used To Know" on The Roula and Ryan Show on 104.1 KRBE:
Personally, I think that was a solid job by Duane.
The 2012 Houston Texans were a bigger disappointment than receiving homework on Friday in grade school. That may sound like an overstatement, but trust me, it’s not. They had all of the pieces: a talented offense AND defense and all the health you can ask for from a team in the playoffs. Other than the loss of Brian Cushing in Week 5, the Texans were the healthiest they have been...

According to Watt’s Twitter account the two had lunch together, but the 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year failed to mention whether the pair broke out in...
