Immediately after the end of the Texans’ season, moves were made, and news was announced. Hold on. There were a lot of little things that came through. Please empty out your pockets, please.

First, the Texans signed Josh Ferguson, former Colts running back, and seven others to futures contracts. The seven other players inked to futures deals in Houston are tight end Jerell Adams, outside linebackers Davin Bellamy and Chris Landrum, offensive guard Maurquice Shakir, offensive tackle David Steinmetz, and wide receivers Jester Weah and Isaac Whitney. Each of these players was on Houston’s practice squad last year.

Then, Kevin Johnson announced his head is okay. He’s ready to play. He’s currently on the team’s roster for next year after his fifth year option was picked up last summer. Nothing is certain; Johnson could still get cut.

Everyone who can leave Houston as a free agent wants to stay in Houston. Tyrann Mathieu wants to remain here. Jadeveon Clowney wants to spend the rest of his career here. And Romeo Crennel is expected to be the defensive coordinator next season.

Lastly, the Texans’ strength coach resigned. Most importantly, if you are already making summer travel plans, you could probably stay in Houston instead of heading all the way out to West Virginia to see the the Texans in training camp. It looks like the Texans will stay here in 2019.
