2. Houston Texans

The Houston Texans are going to have a rookie quarterback under center in 2023 and the goal should be to get him as many weapons as possible to throw to. As far as receiver goes, the rookie QB will at least have a corps that has Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins and John Metchie. It certainly could be worse.

The tight end position is extremely thin for the Texans heading into the 2023 offseason, making it a primary need for the team to consider. You could make the case that the Texans could draft one of the elite tight ends in the early second round but they likely won't be able to get either Michael Mayer or Dalton Kincaid.

For that reason, the Texans could seek out a cheap stopgap option, which is exactly what Everett would be. Houston has its own seventh-round pick as well as Seattle's sixth-round pick so they could trade one of those two selections to get Everett in town.

Houston has $37.6 million in cap space right now, giving the team more than enough space to absorb the one-year salary cap hit. The Texans could try to pursue Dalton Schultz in free agency but they are not necessarily a marquee destination.

Thus, trading a late-round pick for one year of Everett could be a nice contingency plan for the Texans to put into motion.
