The Houston Texans have a short yet storied history including some great players and great moves. There have also been bad moves we wish were April Fools jokes. Let’s take a look.
The Houston Texans have only existed for 17 years and there have been crazy ups and downs throughout those two decades, well, nearly. This team has had three No. 1 overall picks, but they have also played in eight playoff games.
The No. 1 picks give some insight into the franchise. David Carr struggled mightily in the Texans expansion era. Mario Williams had several years of dominance before the Texans opted to not pay him. Jadeveon Clowney has had a mix of both and the team will have to decide if they will pay him in the coming weeks of the 2019 offseason.
All of those playoff teams weren’t created equally either. Some seemed to be significantly better than others, while some squeaked by into the playoffs. Some playoff teams sported some really good quarterbacks, while others sported some ones that probably shouldn’t have started games.
All that being said, there has been a lot happening in only 17 years of existence. The team has drafted a lot of players, some have turned out extremely well while others have bombed really hard. They have signed and traded for players with varying results as well.
So, instead of trolling and trying to trick you into clicking on an article that ultimately ends up being a joke this April Fools, we decided to catalog moves the team made that we simply wish would have been April Fools jokes. Let’s take a look.
