Despite coming off the first losing season under head coach Bill O’Brien, the Houston Texans are a team on the rise with what could be a franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson leading the way. Injuries ruined any chance of the Texans competing last year with J.J. Watt and Watson going down with season-ending injuries, but the future may be bright in Houston even if there are a few players on the team that could be looking for a job soon. According to ESPN’s Sarah Barshop, the Texans may be considering parting ways with one of their best offensive weapons this offseason. Running back Lamar Miller is coming off a down year and may be looking for employment for the 2018 NFL season if Houston indeed feels it’s time to move on. The Texans could part ways with Miller two years into the four-year contract they signed him to before the 2016 season, but given his track record and the team’s impressive $64 million in cap space, it may be worth giving Miller another chance. If he doesn’t replicate the form he showed in Miami — and Foreman takes another step forward — Miller may not be with the Texans after 2018. Miller made a name for himself with the Miami Dolphins during the 2014 NFL season in which he rushed for a career-high 1,099 yards and eight touchdowns. He also made his mark in the passing game with 38 receptions for 275 yards and a touchdown. Miller followed up his breakout year with another solid season in 2015 with 1,269 yards from scrimmage and 10 total touchdowns for Miami.
