2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Josh Lenz

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



Arriving to the Texans during the 2015 season from the Cleveland Browns, Josh Lenz spent the majority of the season on the Texans practice squad. Lenz worked week in and week out with the team, so there is a familiarity with what the slot wide receiver can do. His job with the Texans marks Lenz's fifth team since coming into the NFL in 2013 out of Iowa State.


Lenz is a perfect fit for the Texans slot wide receiver position and he showed during off-season work that he can catch at a high level. A bigger receiver at 6'0" and 194 lbs., Lenz is able to use his body to shield off safeties and is a bit too quick for linebackers in the middle of the field. With a crowded position group, Lenz will have to put up an outstanding camp to stick around. 

Roster Situation 

With a new look wide receiver group because of the draft, Lenz could end up being with the practice squad once again.
