How the Texans could line up for the 2021 season

The Houston Texans went from AFC South champions to cellar dwellers last season, and it could get worse in 2021. A 4-12 record signaled the end of Bill O'Brien's tenure as head coach and general manager, with the franchise turning the on-field reigns over to 65-year-old David Culley and front-office duties to Nick Caserio. Both are first-timers in their respective positions, and adding to their degree of difficulty is the uncertain status of quarterback Deshaun Watson, who is the subject of more than 20 civil suits accusing him of sexual misconduct and assault. He remains under investigation by the NFL and also has expressed a desire to be traded. On top of Watson's situation, the roster has been practically turned over, highlighted by the departure of franchise cornerstone J.J. Watt, who requested his release in February and eventually signed with Arizona.
