The Houston Texans are expected to trade for a wide receiver, according to Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle.
The Texans have one of the best wide outs in the NFL in DeAndre Hopkins, but after Hopkins, there is a whole lot of uncertainty in Houston's receiving corps.
Will Fuller has not played a full season since entering the league in 2016, and Keke Coutee was limited by injuries during his rookie campaign last year and is hurting again heading into Week 1.
It's not like the Texans have a lot of proven talent at tight end, either.
Couple all of that with the fact that running back Lamar Miller is going to miss the entire season due to a torn ACL, and there are some reasons to be concerned about Houston's offense, which would explain why the Texans are looking for another pass-catcher.
Houston ranked just 17th in the NFL in passing offense last year, a clear indication that the Texans need some help at receiver.
Of course, so long as Fuller and Coutee are able to stay on the field, Houston's aerial attack should be just fine, but the checkered injury history of both wide outs makes that possibility seem somewhat unrealistic.
The Texans are coming off of a 2018 campaign in which they won 11 games and captured the AFC South division title before ultimately falling to the Indianapolis Colts in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.
Houston will open up its regular season against the New Orleans Saints next Monday.
