Ask any football expert and each one will tell you the same thing: The Houston Texans are loaded with talent.
Even if one excludes Arian Foster, Owen Daniels and Brian Cushing—who were both injured midseason, the Texans can still lay claim to a multitude of exceptional players, including superstars like J.J. Watt, Andre Johnson and Duane Brown.
So why then were the Texans so unbelievably horrible this season?
Obviously, a large part of it was coaching failures and significant injuries (see players listed above), but those two reasons cannot possibly be the only factors.
The Texans had several major holes on their roster this season, most notably at quarterback, on the offensive line and in the secondary.
In this article, we will take a look at which players the Texans must consider letting go this offseason in order to help wipe away a miserable 2013 season and march boldly into bigger and better things in 2014.
Note: For the sake of including more players and inspiring some debate in the comment section, obvious names like Matt Schaub and Ben Tate will not be mentioned.
