Demeco Ryans had four head coaching interviews scheduled for Saturday, but canceled two of them to spend the remainder of the day preparing for the San Francisco 49ers to play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Brandin Cooks Doesn't Want To Be Part Of A Rebuild

Jan 10, 2023 8:15 AM

Brandin Cooks was candid when asked about his future with the Houston Texans.

"I'm not going into this offseason thinking I want to be a part of a rebuild," the wide receiver said.

Cooks finished with a team-high 699 yards and three touchdowns in his third season with the Texans. He signed a two-year extension with Houston before the season. 

"I'm not looking at it as far as being a part of a rebuild, however that looks," he said. "That's why I trust my camp and my representation to be able to get a map from here to there and to see what that looks like to be a part of something that has a trusted plan."

Laremy Tunsil Wants New Deal To 'Reset' Tackle Market

Dec 29, 2022 8:38 AM

Houston Texans left tackle Laremy Tunsil wants to be the highest-paid tackle in football.

"I don't know who's the highest right now, maybe Trent [Williams] at 23 [million], but I want to top that," Tunsil said. "Always want to reset the market. Perfect opportunity to reset the market. Everything is lining up as far as my contract to how I'm playing. Everything lining up perfectly."

Tunsil said he plans to renegotiate his deal in the offseason. He will be entering the final season of his three-year, $66 million extension that he signed in 2020. 

Williams became the highest-paid offensive lineman in NFL history -- at $23,010,000 per season -- after signing a six-year, $138.06 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2021.

Texans Getting Calls About Brandin Cooks

Oct 24, 2022 9:16 AM

A number of teams have called the Houston Texans about possible trades for Brandin Cooks, according to a report.

Cooks has been traded three times in his career and would tie Eric Dickerson for the most trades in one career if moved again.

The wide receiver is coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. He signed a two-year contract extension in April worth just shy of $40 million with $36 million guaranteed. He's under contract through 2024.

Record Day For Josh Jacobs With Mentor Marcus Allen On Hand

Oct 24, 2022 1:36 AM

Marcus Allen has been a mentor to Josh Jacobs ever since Jacobs entered the NFL as a first-round draft pick in 2019. Fate would have it, then, that Allen was in the Allegiant Stadium suite of Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis on Sunday when Jacobs added his name to the franchise record book for running backs ... alongside Allen.

And it was Allen who corralled Jacobs in the hallway outside of the Raiders' locker room following their 38-20 blowout of the Houston Texans -- a game in which Jacobs rushed for 143 yards and 3 touchdowns -- to tell him, "They should have been running you all along," Jacobs recalled with a laugh.
