It’s May and this is typically the time where news is pretty slow. However, every once in a while there’s a blip we just can’t ignore. Lestar Jean has been on our radar for a bit and he’s starting to make so much noise that we can’t ignore putting something out there to answer a very important question.

Who is Lestar Jean?

Simply put, Jean could be one of this year’s major sleeper candidates. As our own Ken Clein pointed out in his article today, Jean has been working as a starter in practices opposite Kevin Walter while Andre Johnson recovers from injury. While that in of itself isn’t that newsworthy, what he’s showing in practice is.

Before going too far ahead, let’s go back a bit.

Jean is a product of Florida Atlantic, where he was a teammate of Cardinals tight end Rob Housler. In his four year career there, he posted 146 catches, 1,992 yards and fifteen touchdowns. Those aren’t exactly mind boggling statistics, but he did post a nice line of 64/988/8 in his last season at FAU and was named their most improved player in the process.

Yates would have to have a miserable training camp to lose the back-up job, only one quarterback...

Texans’ Dwight Jones no longer wants to play football

Dwight Jones had 2nd or 3rd round talent, but went undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft. He was scooped up by the Texans as an undrafted free agent, but it doesn’t appear he’ll ever play for them.
