2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Akeem Hunt

A closer look at the Houston Texans roster heading into the 2016 training camp.


Akeem Hunt was looked at closely by the Texans during the 2015 draft process and was signed by the team when Arian Foster went down. Hunt spent time with the Baltimore Ravens but ultimately landed with the Texans and brought along slowly. The Texans worked him into the offense and, by the end of the year, he had a complete offensive package built for him. Hunt has big play ability and he showed that last season.


Hunt’s place on this team is ultimately up in the air and, with the additions of Lamar Miller and Tyler Ervin, it seems that he is being cut out of the depth chart. The Texans want their depth charts to be versatile and Hunt is similar to Miller and Ervin. Hunt has plenty of odds to overcome and it will take an extraordinary camp for him to come out on the right side of the roster situation. 

Roster Situation

Can be placed on the practice squad, right now 53-man roster seems like a long shot.
