The Texans lost the majority of their wide receivers last season. Will Fuller V tore his ACL. Bruce Ellington was released early into the season. Keke Coutee’s hamstring bothered him the entire season. Demaryius Thomas tore his Achilles. The Texans took to waivers to find replacements. One of which was DeAndre Carter. The emergency slot receiver caught 20 passes for 195 yards, returned punts and kickoffs, and was an adequate quick fill option.

The Texans liked what he did so much that they gave him a one-year contract worth $570 thousand. There was speculation regarding Houston finding receiver depth this offseason, but with Carter, DeAndre Hopkins, Fuller V, Coutee, and Vyncint Smith, they may now not need to now. Finding another receiver seems a lot lower on Houston’s list of needs now.
