The DeShaun Watson debacle has completely thrown off the future of the Texans franchise. The Texans are a mess because star quarterback DeShaun Watson does not want to play for the team anymore. The Texans didn’t really plan for this and either journeyman Tyrod Taylor or rookie Davis Mills will be the new starter. These two aren’t a fraction of the player Watson is and it doesn’t help that they have no one to throw to. Will Fuller has fled to the Dolphins and the only noteworthy receivers still on the roster are the aging Brandin Cooks, Andre Roberts, and Randall Cobb. Their running back and tight end situations aren’t any more glamorous as the key players in those positions are Mark Ingram, David Johnson. Phillip Lndsay, and Jordan Akins. Houston has a problem and the future is very very bleak.
