Building The Houston Texans’ 2019 Roster

How should the Texans attack this offseason?

While many pundits are throwing out these big money deals the Houston Texans could/should/might try to hand out this offseason, other than [NAME REDACTED], that’s never really been the H-Town way of doing things.

There’s a slightly newer sheriff in town, though, and his name is Brian Gaine.

Since we’re essentially in uncharted waters, the Texans can go just about any direction. Flush with cap space, multiple draft picks, and lots of roster holes, Gaine can make a lot of moves and really upgrade the current roster.

The question is whether Gaine should make a few giant splash moves, or a lot of smarter, less risk/reward moves to build the Houston Texans roster to where it needs to be.

If you were Brian Gaine, how would you lean into this?

Should he go after big name free agents and throw crazy money at players in the hopes of getting a quick return on investment? Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell, Ju’Wuan James, Earl Thomas, Daryl Williams and Ronald Darby might all look great in battle red.

Should Gaine sign a handful of second and third tier free agents to address depth, albeit with less risk/reward? Pierre Desir, Morris Claiborne, T.J. Yeldon and Adrian Peterson could all help out in that regard.

Should he focus on one or two free agents, with the bulk of his attention being directed to the 2019 NFL Draft?

Or do you think it’s now or never for the Texans, that it’s imperative they maximize the benefit of Deshaun Watson on a rookie contract? Should Gaine push all the chips to the middle and go for broke?

While we won’t know exactly how all this plays out until the 2019 season begins, it’s an interesting time to be a Houston Texans fan.
