Texans agreed to terms with WR Cecil Shorts, formerly of the Jaguars, on a two-year, $6 million contract.
For now, Shorts will slot in as the Texans' No. 2 receiver. Shorts is capable of playing both inside and out, but might be best left in the slot at this stage of his career. Shorts flirted with stardom in 2012 before soft-tissue injuries and quarterback issues derailed his 2013-14. Still only 27, Shorts still has some upside to offer, but his injury woes coupled with the Texans' quarterback issues make him an unlikely fantasy-rebound candidate. The Texans shouldn't be done adding bodies at receiver. Mar 16 - 2:50 PM
