It has been a busy offseason for the Houston Texans but they should look to make another move before calling it a wrap. They could use a veteran cornerback that can provide consistent impact on the field in addition to beyond able to lead by example for the team’s secondary prospects.
After deciding to mutually part ways with Johnathan Joseph, the Texans will use Bradley Roby in the No. 1 cornerback role. If they were to sign a cornerback like Aqib Talib to help cover the boundary, Roby would be able to spend more time in the slot.
While the Texans may not be a legitimate Super Bowl contender, they at least are coming off a playoff appearance. If he could manage to stay healthy, it would be a solid opportunity for him to recover his value and enter next offseason with a more robust market.
There is little concern regarding the potential for the Texans to be able to afford to sign Talib. They have a little over $19.2 million in salary-cap space remaining and likely wouldn’t need to use a lot of it to get a deal done.
