It seems like forever since the Houston Texans have had some actual good news regarding the organization.
Every week, there seems to be more and more news regarding the status of Deshaun Watson and how he possibly wants out after he was essentially lied to by the front office on being informed during the GM and head coaching process.
Former Houston Texans running back, Arian Foster, recently discussed the team and how they treated star players poorly.
“I do know that the organization had their troubles bringing in free agents, which I never really understood,” Foster said during an appearance on “The Gems and Juice” podcast. “They have their struggles in communicating with players. I’ve always thought this about the NFL in general, but my experience with Houston is that they really didn’t give a f–k about how you felt and what you said. It was like ‘you do what we say.’ And that’s another variable as to why I was like disassociated from the wins and losses s–t.
“It was like, ya’ll don’t give a f–k about my input. Maybe three coaches — tops — played at that level, [the others] just [have] been around the game,” Foster continued. “And so how the f–k can you not have input from people doing it at a high level, who are in it? I never understood that s–t. And so once you realize that you’re just a chess piece, then for me, it was just like, ‘alright, I’m just going to do what I can…I’m gonna play hard…do my thing…take care of my dues…but I’m here for a purpose.'”
The Texans are currently the only franchise in the league that does not have a head coach.
Despite the team trading away Deandre Hopkins — Watson still finished the 2020 season with a league-high 4,823 passing yards to go along with 33 touchdowns and a career-low seven interceptions.
