The Houston Texans are not the team we thought they were an offseason ago. Their offense, when the offensive line is struggling, is a major liability, and Wade Phillips has shown that he struggles limiting elite quarterbacks on the defensive end. In order to make it to the promised land next season, the Texans will have to address several priorities in free agency.
The problem is, though, that the Texans have no money to spend. Literally, no money at all. So erase all dreams you might possibly possess of the Texans bringing in Mike Wallace or Dwayne Bowe; they are infeasible.
Instead, the Texans must solve their roster issues with an incredible draft, which Gary Kubiak and Rick Smith are certainly capable of pulling off.
In free agency, however, the Texans can ensure their team progresses and not regresses by making the correct personnel decisions.
Here are the most important priorities for the Texans in the upcoming free-agency period.
