2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: C.J. Fiedorowicz

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


Entering his third season with the Texans, C.J. Fiedorowiczcomes into 2016 in his same role as the previous two. It has been a process for Fiedorowicz, which began with concentrating on blocking year one and increasing his participating in the receiving aspect of the offense in year two. He is still far off from where he needs to be as an inline tight end, but he will continue to be a blocking first tight end. 


He will continue to get work at the Y-Tight End and will continue to be an important cog in the offense. The best blocking tight end on the roster, the Texans opt to use Fiedorowicz in max protection and the running game. Getting him involved in the passing game would be an added plus.
