Are Texans Really Interested In Antonio Brown?

Antonio Brown has people in his corner who want to see the talented-but-troubled wide receiver back in the NFL. The Houston Texans certainly wish him no ill will. …

But do the Texans also wish Brown to join the Texans?

That’s the suggestion via ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, who cites a source close to Brown indicating that the Texans “have shown the most interest” in signing the receiver, who is currently serving an eight-game suspension for his alleged involvement in numerous  off-field incidents.

You will note, though, that the ESPN report is carefully-worded in a way that covers up holes in the story. To wit:

*ESPN says its source is “close to Brown.” That’s the sort of “source” with a likely agenda to stir up business for Brown. In short, it’s the sort of thing an agent would tell a reporter.

*There is no confirmation from Houston – outside of coach and general manager Bill O’Brien issue a very polite and generic response to questions about the report.

Said O’Brien on Friday morning: “We’re very satisfied with what we have here right now. Look, you never say never to anything. … So, right now, I don’t anticipate anything, whether it’s (Brown) or any other player right now.”
