Here's the latest on whether Texans will use franchise tag on Will Fuller

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.
