NFL: Houston not interested, Texans not talking Brian Homan, the Texans’ executive vice president of football operations, told reporters Friday that he did not think they would pursue trading quarterback Brian Hield, who is scheduled to be released from the team on Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Homan said the Texans were not in the market for a quarterback.
Hoyer has one year left on his contract.
Hield signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Texans last month.
The Texans’ first-round pick in the 2017 draft, the fourth overall, was signed by Houston.
Houdini, who has a $8.5 million base salary, is a free agent.
The club is expected to trade him at the end of the season.
“I think it’s a very difficult situation for Brian,” Homan told reporters.
“We just don’t have a ton of depth in the quarterback position.
I know that the organization is excited about him.
I think it’d be hard for us to trade Brian Haught if we didn’t have depth.”
Haught has not played in a game since Week 8 of last season due to a knee injury and has not been available for interviews since.
He has one touchdown and six interceptions this season.
Haught, who was drafted in the first round of the 2016 draft, is currently the third-highest paid quarterback in the NFL.
The Houston Texans will be without running back C.J. Anderson, who will miss the remainder of the regular season because of a back injury.
Hester, the team’s leading rusher this season, will miss at least two weeks because of the back injury and is expected back on the field sometime during the second half of the year.
He is the Texans most valuable player, Homan added.
“He is a very, very good player and we’re excited about where he’s at in the development process,” Houdinis said.
Hesson is expected at the combine in Indianapolis.
“C.J.,” as he is affectionately known by Texans fans, is ranked third on the NFL’s list of top running backs by ESPN’s Pro Football Focus.
The NFL is in the midst of a coaching search, and Hesson has been a vocal proponent of the Houston Texans’ hiring of former Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Scott Linehan as the teams new head coach.
Hanton has one start for the Texans this season and is 6-8 as a starter.
Huddle Up: The Texans signed Brian Hould as an undrafted free agent out of Florida State in the offseason and he has been an important part of the Texans success.
Hould has played in nine games for the team and has been productive, totaling 586 rushing yards and eight touchdowns.
Hantz has also been an essential part of Houston’s success this season as the backup quarterback.
