2015 Houston Texans Free Agent Tracker: Cecil Shorts Visiting Texans Today

New, comments

You might have heard something about the Houston Texans needing wide receiver help since Andre Johnson was released. The team could be looking to partially fill that void by bringing in a free agent wide receiver from an AFC South division rival.

Vince Wilfork isn't the only free agent visiting Houston today. John McClain reports that a wide receiver looking for gainful employment is in town as well.

With the release of Andre Johnson last week, the Houston Texans have a glaring need at wide receiver. Shorts, who has posted these numbers over the course of his four-year NFL career and is well known to the Texans from his time with the Jaguars, has also garnered interest from the Chargers and Jets. Should Shorts choose to sign with the Texans, he would immediately become the second most accomplished receiver on the roster. Assuming Shorts wants to be here, the question becomes what kind of money it would take to bring him aboard.

Are you a fan of the Texans signing Cecil Shorts III? If not, why? Not a believer in Shorts' ability to stay healthy? Or do you think a contract would be too rich for your blood and not in the Texans' best interest, regardless of the current weakness at wide receiver?

UPDATE: Shorts signed a two-year deal with the Texans.
