Texans Finally Have An Answer At Running Back

The Houston Texans have been searching for a long-term answer at running back for a while now. After a promising rookie season by 2022 second-round pick Dameon Pierce, the 24-year-old struggled and was eventually demoted from starter to backup in favor of veteran Devin Singletary.

But Singletary's signing with the New York Giants left the young Texans with a running back hole. After missing out on Saquon Barkley and Aaron Jones, the Houston Texans have traded for Bengals running back Joe Mixon.

Texans Make A Big Move Trading For Joe Mixon

The Cincinnati Bengals have traded running back Joe Mixon to the Houston Texans in exchange for a seventh-round pick.

Houston trades: seventh-round pick

The tenth-worst rushing team in the NFL will now be in the hands of 27-year-old Joe Mixon. The 2021 Pro Bowler was drafted in Oklahoma's second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Since his debut with the Bengals, Mixon has been one of the best running backs in the league since 2017. He has rushed for over 1,000 yards in four out of seven seasons.

Mixon Leaves Cincinnati As Third All-Time Leading Rusher

Mixon has rushed for 6,412 yards and 49 touchdowns and averages 4.1 yards per carry. After missing ten games in his first four seasons, Mixon has stayed healthy, only missing four games in the last three seasons. His best season came in 2021 when he rushed for 1,205 yards and 13 touchdowns as the Bengals made it to the Super Bowl.

The former Bengal has also been reliable in the receiving game. With over 2,000 receiving yards and 13 receiving touchdowns, he becomes another weapon for CJ Stroud to throw to. Mixon had nearly 300 more receiving yards last season than Singletary, who only had 52.
