Dez Bryant still remains a free agent, despite there seemingly being a number of teams who have needed wide-receiver help this season. He has reportedly received offers from both the Browns and Ravens, which he turned down in hopes of a more lucrative offer or a better situation.


Well, after last night, there's a chance that could become a reality. Houston Texans wide receiver​Will Fuller went down with what is believed to be a torn ACL, and although it is not yet confirmed, that is what the team expects to be revealed in an MRI Friday.

With Keke Coutee on the sidelines with a hamstring injury, this leaves the Texans with a major hole at wide receiver. And Bryant was indeed watching the game last night -- he tweeted about the incredible catch DeAndre Hopkins made in the mid-way through the second half. 

And it really was an amazing catch.

But the real story here is, could Bryant have been tweeting about one of his future teammates? It sure seems like as good a landing spot as any for Bryant. He would be a good complimentary piece to Hopkins and another huge red-zone target for the Texans' young QB, Deshaun Watson. Bryant would be able to remain in the state of Texas, as Houston is a little more than three hours from Dallas, much closer than Cleveland or Baltimore.

While there have been no serious reports yet around Bryant signing in Houston, it seems that the door should now be open. And if Bryant does indeed want to work in the NFL again this year, he should strongly consider the offer, if the Texans call and make one.
