Mike Sims-Walker could resurface with the Houston Texans
Both Mike Sims-Walker and Justin Forsett were set to make big splashes in the NFL. But things don’t always turn out as they seem and now as training camps are approaching, both the WR and RB are still looking for a 2012-2013 home.
On Wednesday according to Adam Schefter, they will visit the Houston Texans. Of the two, Sims-Walker stands to have the best chance to thrive in this system.
After being drafted in 2008 by the Jags, Sims-Walker never quite broke out and has never played a complete 16 game season. His career highs came in 2009, where posted 63 receptions for 7 TDs and 869 yards.
After a brief 2011 stint with the Rams and a yo-yo return to Jacksonville, in 2012 Sims Walker could have a unique opportunity with the Texans.
Whether he can or whether he can’t, what Sims-Walker has shown is that he’s not a number one receiver. In Houston, he can replace a guy like Kevin Walter in the number two slot opposite Andre Johnson.
Without all eyes being on him, the Texans could be the perfect fit for Sims-Walker.
As for Forsett, he’s visiting a situation that is loaded with running backs. The odds on him seeing the field with Arian Foster and Ben Tate locked in as Houston’s core running game is nil.
Elsewhere the Texans have younger backs like rookie Davin Meggett, who could land a spot on the depth chart based on his return ability.
