Texans' 53-man roster projection includes a veteran cut at wide receiver

The Houston Texans open training camp on July 25 at Houston Methodist Training Center in Houston, Texas. The Texans are coming off their second consecutive AFC South title and double-digit-win season. But this time the Texans will have to do it without Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in March, and running back Carlos Hyde, who had a 1,000-yard season in 2019 but wasn't re-signed in free agency. Here is a 53-man roster projection.

QUARTERBACK (2): Deshaun Watson, AJ McCarron

The Texans are set at quarterback with Watson and McCarron, who signed a one-year, $4 million deal with Houston this offseason.
