Opportunity knocked, the Texans didn't answer

The Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson is reporting that multiple league sources are telling him that they don't believe the Texans will use the franchise tag on Will Fuller. The tag for WRs this year will be around $16.4 million and the Texans don't have much room under the cap. Plus, part of the motivation for keeping Fuller might have something to do with keeping Deshaun Watson happy. If Watson truly is out on the Texans, then keeping Fuller doesn't buy Houston anything with Deshaun.

Fuller has been terrific when healthy with the Texans, but he's yet to record a single thousand-yard season in his 5-year career. However, he is a valuable weapon at receiver that will have no trouble finding a new team. If the Texans knew Deshaun was going to be here moving forward, personally, I wouldn't let Fuller get away.

Will the Texans be a Top 10 offense in 2024? Composite Getty Image.

Shannon Sharpe and Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson react to Bleacher Report's offensive power rankings, which have the Dallas Cowboys (9th) ranked ahead of the Houston Texans (12th).

Both Sharpe and Johnson believe Houston should be ranked ahead of Dallas, especially after the additions of Stefon Diggs and Joe Mixon. Outside of CD Lamb, the Cowboys don't have any playmakers on the level of Diggs, Nico Collins, and Tank Dell.

In fact, Sharpe goes as far as to rank the Texans in the Top 10 above the Bengals and Bills.

Finally, the guys react to comments from former Texans corner Steven Nelson, who was recently critical of Houston head coach DeMeco Ryans.

Be sure to watch the video above as the guys lay out why the Texans should be ranked higher on Bleacher Report's list, and much more!
