The Houston Texans had arguably one of the most sensational conclusions to the offseason with firing general manager Brian Gaine, but the totality of the offseason was unimpressive.nfl custom jerseys cheap
Frank Schwab from Yahoo! Sports released his preview for the Texans, and claims the acquisitions of safety Tashaun Gipson and cornerback Bradley Roby to replace Tyrann Mathieu and Kareem Jackson were downgrades at their respective positions.
It’s safe to say safety Tyrann Mathieu was the Texans’ fifth star last season, but he left to join Kansas City via free agency. Fellow defensive back Kareem Jackson took an $11 million per year deal in Denver. They were replaced by safety Tashaun Gipson and cornerback Bradley Roby. Gipson and Roby have talent, but those are downgrades. The Texans signed left tackle Matt Kalil, but he has been a disappointment for years, with the Vikings and then the Panthers. And Kalil is coming off a knee injury.cheap custom nfl jerseys

While the firing of Gaine and subsequent failed pursuit of New England Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio was not mentioned by Schwab as a contributing factor for the grade, it nonetheless a Jets-esque spectacle Houston could have done without — like putting an exclamation mark on an otherwise boring or monotonous sentence to liven things up.nfl jerseys cheap nike
