The Houston Texans should look to sign Kareem Hunt in free agency

The Houston Texans are entering the upcoming NFL offseason knowing they are just a piece or two away from making a Super Bowl run. After falling to the Kansas City Chiefs in heartbreaking fashion in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, the team needs to make a move or two in free agency.

One of the areas the Texans could look to improve this offseason would be at the running back position. Carlos Hyde rushed for over 1,000 yards, but he is not the kind of back that can take over a game. Duke Johnson is a solid receiving back, but did not look great on the ground.

If the Texans truly want to make an impact move at running back, there is one free agent that is being forgot about. Kareem Hunt is coming off of a solid season with the Cleveland Browns that was shortened by a suspension, but he is going to be an intriguing free agent for teams like the Texans to look at.

Hunt ended up playing in eight games with the Browns in 2019, carrying the football 43 times for 179 yards and two touchdowns. He averaged 4.2 yards per carry, which is very solid. In addition to his numbers on the ground, Hunt caught 37 passes for 285 yards and another score.

All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at why the Texans should try to sign Hunt this offseason in free agency.
