The 2021 NFL Draft came to a conclusion two weeks ago. Ahead of teams’ rookie minicamp, those recently selected are starting to sign their NFL contracts. Houston signed Nico Collins, Brevin Jordan, and Roy Lopez to their first NFL contract this week.

Texans have signed rookie defensive tackle Roy Lopez, according to a league source— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) May 12, 2021
The trio is ready to join the Texans undrafted free agents to run around in shorts, shimmel, and a helmet, and peruse in front of Nick Caserio, showing off their goods for him.
In addition to this, the Texans brought in safety HaHa Clinton-Dix for a tryout. The strong safety would add competition to a safety group that includes Justin Reid, Eric Murray, Lonnie Johnson Jr., and A.J. Moore. He fits exactly what the Texans are looking for. It would be surprising if he doesn’t sign.
Texans are trying out veteran safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix at their rookie minicamp, per a league source. Former Packers first round draft pick and 2016 Pro Bowl selection has 522 career tackles and 16 interceptions.

Houston is also rumored to be interested in former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Steven Nelson.
Cornerback Steven Nelson’s market has been strong since becoming a free agent. Nelson has interest and has heard from 14 teams including #Texans #Bears #Eagles #Bengals and #Bills, per source. He continues to be patient waiting for right fit and opportunity.— Jeremy Fowler (@JFowlerESPN) May 12, 2021
It’s easy to get wrapped up only in the first two waves of free agency and the NFL Draft. These are the major sources of improvement. That being said, teams aren’t finalized until September. There are other avenues to add talent still. The Texans are the Texans, but there are still changes available and upcoming.
