After trading off one running back on Wednesday, the Texans are eyeing some free agents at the position. According to veteran reporter Aaron Wilson, Houston auditioned Jaylen Samuels and Darius Jackson.

Samuels was a fifth-round pick by the Steelers back in 2018, and he saw time in 42 games through three seasons with the organization. However, after collecting 935 yards from scrimmage and five touchdowns through his first two years in the NFL, he was limited to only 74 yards on 18 touches in 2020. The 25-year-old was cut by the Steelers at the end of the preseason and later landed on their practice squad, but he was released yesterday.

Deshaun Watson not interested in playing for Eagles?

  Deshaun Watson not interested in playing for Eagles? The Houston Texans may be inching closing to trading DeShaun Watson ahead of the Nov. 2 deadline, but there's apparently one interested team that Watson isn't interested in playing for.According to Texans reporter Aaron Wilson, the Philadelphia Eagles were aggressive in pursuing Watson at one point. Eagles general manager Howie Roseman even went through the trouble of contacting Watson’s legal team and sending an investigator to Houston. The issue is Watson has a no-trade clause, and he reportedly does not want to play for Philly.

Jackson has bounced around the league since being selected in the sixth round of the 2016 draft. He’s had three stints with the Cowboys; two stints with the Colts; and cameos with the Browns, Packers, Buccaneers, Raiders and Texans. The 27-year-old spent the 2021 preseason with Las Vegas and Houston. In total, he’s seen time in four games, getting six touches for 16 yards.

The Texans traded veteran Mark Ingram to the Saints on Wednesday, but Houston still has plenty of depth at the position. At the moment, the team is rostering David Johnson, Rex Burkhead, Phillip Lindsay, and Scottie Phillips.
