The Houston Texans have been very busy today.
Their day started with them bringing in a tight end.
They signed former Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz to a 1-year deal.

The Houston Texans have put together an interesting series of moves for their offense recently.
They had also signed Robert Woods to replace Brandin Cooks, who they traded yesterday.
The team still has an opening at quarterback, which is expected to be filled by whichever of the top 2 rookie options the Panthers don’t draft.
Whoever it is that ends up being selected with that 2nd overall pick, they will have some interesting options around them.
They’ll have Singletary and Dameon Pierce at running back. We already know they’ll have Woods, Schultz, Brevin Jordan, and Nico Collins to throw to with John Metchie expected to return and the Cleveland Browns’ 1st round pick that could be used to grab one of this year’s top receivers.
They’ve also already taken a big step to keep him protected by extending Laremy Tunsil.
With a lot of these players on short-term deals, it looks like they are trying to give whoever their next QB is some veteran options to lean on until they can develop a more competitive roster.
It’s a good way to make sure they don’t break a rookie’s confidence in their first year and should keep them from finishing in the bottom 3 for another year, but we definitely shouldn’t expect this roster to make them the next team to make a surprising playoff run.
