RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Hunt was an undrafted free agent out of Purdue who didn't sign until November when the Texans added him to practice roster. Two weeks later, he was promoted to the active roster and played in the final seven games of the regular season and the playoff loss to Kansas City. The former Boilermaker is noted for his speed and elusiveness, which makes Hunt redundant in the backfield with 2016 fourth-round draft pick Tyler Ervin. Ervin is expected to be a returner on special teams, which may give him an edge when finalizing the opening-day roster. The question became would the Texans reserve roster spots for both, but they didn't, cutting Hunt after the fourth preseason game. He re-signed to practice squad one day after being released and will be on hand should any injuries crop up.

2015

Reserve running back, long shot to make the roster.
