Texans In Active Contract Talks With Laremy Tunsil

The Houston Texans are in active contract talks with Pro Bowl left tackle Laremy Tunsil, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly. Houston has offered Tunsil $18.5 million per season, but Tunsil's counter-offer is "significantly higher." After the Texans traded two first-round picks and a second-rounder for Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills last year, Tunsil is fully expected to become the highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL. He's under contract for $10.35 million in 2020 and is seeking a deal that averages more than $20 million per season. The good news is the Texans have around $35 million in salary cap space, which is the second-most in the league behind the Browns. Having Tunsil around long-term will be great news for quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Randall Cobb Lands In Houston

The Houston Texans agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Randall Cobb on Monday night. The deal includes $18.75 million in guarantees. Houston traded away DeAndre Hopkins in a head-scratching move earlier in the day, so Cobb will try to help fill the void that Nuk left behind. The Texans will most likely address the position in the draft, too, but Cobb should have a starting role alongside Will Fuller and Kenny Stills. The 29-year-old could see heavy targets from quarterback Deshaun Watson after catching 55 passes for 828 yards (15.1 yards per catch) and three touchdowns in his one and only season with Dallas. Depending on who else the Texans add, Cobb could be a PPR sleeper in 2020.

Texans Re-Sign A.J. McCarron

The Houston Texans re-signed quarterback A.J. McCarron to an undisclosed deal on Monday. McCarron announced his return to the team on his Instagram account. The 29-year-old former Alabama quarterback is merely the backup to Deshaun Watson. He played in just two games last season, completing 21 of his 37 attempts with no touchdowns and an interception. You can continue to ignore him for fantasy purposes unless Watson misses time with an injury in 2020.

David Johnson Traded To Texans In Blockbuster Deal

Former All-Pro running back David Johnson has been traded from the Arizona Cardinals to the Houston Texans in a blockbuster deal on Monday. The Texans will take on all of Johnsons $13 million owed to him this year and receive a second-round pick in this year's draft as well as a fourth-round pick in next year's draft. In return, the Cardinals get wide receiverDeAndre Hopkins and a fourth-round pick this year. This is great news for those that held onto Johnson in keeper/dynasty formast after Kenyan Drake took his job last season. He should immediately step into the primary role and goal-line duties, withDuke Johnson being used in a third-down and change-of-pace role. If healthy, DJ could easily rebound to RB1 status in 2020 in his new digs. With Hopkins out of the picture in Houston, Will Fuller and Kenny Stills become the team's top two wideouts, with Keke Coutee and Deandre Carter also in the mix. Expect Houston to address the position in free agency and/or the draft.

Texans Re-Sign Bradley Roby

The Houston Texans re-signed cornerback Bradley Roby to a three-year, $36 million deal on Sunday, according to sources. Roby played in just 10 games in his first season with the Texans in 2019, but he'll return as the team's best cornerback. They'll need the 27-year-old to be at his best and to stay healthy this season if they want to improve a secondary that was routinely torched by opposing offenses in 2019. Roby finished last season with 38 tackles (35 solo), two interceptions (one for a touchdown), eight passes defensed and one forced fumble. Houston's defense/special teams can probably be left to the waiver wire in most standard leagues to begin the 2020 campaign.
