Texans to Focus on Defesne This Offseason

It looks like upgrading the defense will again be the main off season agenda of Texans GM Rick Smith. The following from Texans.com seems to point in that direction:

Texans general manager Rick Smith is busy evaluating draft prospects and getting ready for free agency. He talked to Texans TV’s Brooke Bentley about the Texans’ needs this offseason. When asked: What kind of talent do you think the Texans need this offseason to get to the next level on defense? Smith responded, “I think that when you look at our football team on the defensive side of the ball, I think you can always improve athleticism. I think, in addition to some of those things, you can always improve your corner position. You can never have enough men that can cover. And so you’re always looking to improve yourself on the edge that way. I think a big-time safety – I think (S) Eugene Wilson did a nice job for us when he had his opportunities to play.

So, I certainly would expect him to continue, provided that we can get him signed back. He’s an unrestricted free agent, as you know. And so, we want to continue to build on some of those things, but then to add another pass rusher maybe opposite Mario (Williams) like (head coach) Gary (Kubiak) is talking about. And I think overall, improve the athleticism on that side of the ball, I think we’ll be fine.”
