Report: Texans Targeting WRs Randall Cobb, Jeremy Maclin, & Torrey Smith

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans are targeting top-tier receiver free agents like Randall Cobb, Jeremy Maclin, and Torrey Smith.

  • Adam Caplan suggested earlier in the day that the Texans were a team to keep an eye on for Smith.

McClain mentions that Houston is looking to replace veteran WR Andre Johnson, who is expected to be traded or released in the coming days.

The Texans are reportedly be aggressive out of the gate as they’ve already locked up RT Derek Newton to a five-year contract and are believed to be talking to their other free agents.

Cobb, 24, caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns. He also contributed as the team’s punt returner this year. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 9 wide receiver out of 110 qualifying players.

Smith, 25, caught 49 passes for 767 yards and a career best 11 touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has Smith rated as the No. 37 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.

Maclin, 26, caught 85 passes for 1,318 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns over the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 14 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.

3 speedy recievers that are still young. They would fit in well in Bill O’Briens system. I hope Texans grab one of them, it doesn’t matter which one.
