The Houston Texans are most certainly going to be sellers by the time the trade deadline comes around. According to Jason La Canfora, the Texans are discussing a number of trades as team owner Cal McNair has been advised to try and boost the team’s future draft capital and financial situation after the disastrous management by previous HC/GM Bill O’Brien.
The report also states that the franchise is also gauging the market for veteran OLB Whitney Mercilus and received some feelers for RB Duke Johnson and TE Darren Fells.
Before the 2019 season, O’Brien mortgaged the future by trading a package of picks for left tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills. Houston’s 2021 first- and second-round draft picks belong to the Miami Dolphins.
