Former Colts wide receiver Andre Johnson visits Titans

Former Colts wide receiver Andre Johnson was visiting a division rival today, as the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain reported that Johnson was visiting the Tennessee Titans (as ESPN’s Adam Schefter noted). Former Texans and Colts WR Andre Johnson visited the Tennessee Titans today, as @McClain_on_NFL reported. Feel-out session for both sides.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 26, 2016 There’s no word on a signing yet, and as Schefter says it was simply a visit for both sides to get to know each other. What’s interesting, however, is that Johnson has played for both the...

Colts place Tyler Varga on reserve/retired list, sign running back Abou Toure

Earlier today, the Indianapolis Colts announced that running back Tyler Varga was placed on the reserve/did not report list, meaning he didn’t show up to training camp today. I speculated that it was perhaps because he was considering retirement, and it turns out that was indeed the case. The Colts later announced that they have placed Varga on the reserve/retired list, and to fill his place on the roster the team signed running back Abou Toure. Varga was signed as an undrafted free agent last offseason out of Yale and impressed right away in training camp and preseason, playing well...

Traitor Spotted At Traitors' Facility Doing Traitorous and Treason-y Things

All I can say is "ick." Sooooooooo...you remember last year when news broke that Andre Johnson signed with the Colts along with Frank Gore and a couple of other players to build the best team 2007 has ever seen? Remember when he went there because he thought it was the best chance for him to win a Super Bowl? Remember thinking that Dre signing with the Colts was the worst thing any of us could have imagined for the once-revered Texans wide receiver? Oh, how delightfully naive we were in those halcyon days. It could be about to get so very much worse. How?  Because Andre Johnson, the GOAT,...

Houston Texans Sign Ra'Zahn Howard After 2016 NFL Supplemental Draft

The defensive tackle from Purdue wasn't drafted today, but he still finds himself embarking on a career in the NFL with the Texans. The NFL had its annual Supplemental Draft today, and none of the six players eligible were drafted. No players were selected in today’s @NFL Supplemental Draft. The 6 eligible players are now free agents pic.twitter.com/1Kq0qilx1B — Randall Liu (@RLiuNFL) July 14, 2016 Yet that doesn't mean that one of those six didn't become a member of the Houston Texans today (tip o' the cap to bhsman for the heads up on this news).

Andre Johnson is a free agent, apparently still wants to play

I forgot that Andre Johnson was still playing. Or still wants to play. After 12 seasons in Houston, Johnson went to the Colts last season but was released early this offseason after just one season. Johnson is working out, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. Presumably he’s working out because he wants to play in 2016. No, I don’t think the Chiefs are going to sign him. He’s 35 years old next week and isn’t the type of player the Chiefs are looking for at this point. In his prime, yes, I would have loved him. But not now. Pro Football Talk pointed out that he is...

3 Texans games included in NFL YouTube Classics

The Texans are the youngest NFL franchise but Houston was still presented in NFL YouTube Classics. Earlier this year, the National Football League announced an expanded partnership with YouTube. The league would add "three of the most memorable games for each of the 32 clubs." to each team's youtube page. The three games were voted on by each fan base on facebook. Now it's time for the winners. The Houston Texans had three games, but the Texans had a fourth game selected -- the 2015 AFC wild card game between the Chiefs and Texans (insert Jordan Cry face). The positive games selected...
