Texans' Cecil Shorts: Takes pay cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shorts' base salary has been reduced to a non-guaranteed figure of $1.2 million for 2016, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Shorts' original deal called for $2.75 million non-guaranteed, but by re-working his contract with the Texans, he's presumably earned a degree of job security at the amended team-friendly terms. Shorts, who caught 42 passes for 484 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games last season, is thus slated to face competition for playing time opposite DeAndre Hopkins from the likes of fellow wideouts Jaelen Strong, Will Fuller and Braxton Miller. In any case, Shorts' experience figures to be an asset to the team's passing game, now helmed by QB Brock Osweiler, and it's plausible that the 28-year-old wideout will carve out some PPR utility this season if he's able to mesh well with his new signal-caller.

Texans' Cecil Shorts: Will have competition in training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Shorts will have competition for his starting spot in training camp after the Texans drafted a pair of receivers this spring.

The additions of first-rounder Will Fuller and third-rounder Braxton Miller show that the Texans are intent on infusing their receiving corps with young and dynamic talent. Fuller likely presents the biggest challenge to Shorts given the fact that he was the Texans' first selection, and that his speed complements DeAndre Hopkins on the outside. Still, Shorts has the inherent advantage of experience within the system over the Texans' pair of rookie wideouts. Regardless, the veteran will need to put together a strong showing in camp to keep the young weapons at bay.

Texans' Cecil Shorts: One catch in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) caught one of three targets for five yards in Saturday's 30-0 loss to Kansas City in the wild-card round of the playoffs. He and fellow wideout Nate Washington combined for just two catches and eight yards in the loss, but most of that can be attributed to the poor play of quarterback Brian Hoyers.

Shorts was third on the Houston Texans in targets (75), receptions (42) and yards (484), but had some difficulty staying on the field while dealing with hamstring and shoulder injuries. Shorts can be retained by the Texans for the 2016 season, but there might be a push to give Jaelen Strong a more prominent role. The team's first priority is figuring out their quarterback situation, which will obviously impact Shorts' value next season.

Texans' Cecil Shorts: Active Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Shorts (hamstring) is active for Saturday's wild-card game versus the Chiefs.

The Texans will have their entire receiving corps intact -- DeAndre Hopkins (hand) and Nate Washington (hip) are playing -- but Shorts is returning from a two-game absence to face the ninth-ranked pass defense, a combination which may not yield the desired results in the box score.

Texans' Cecil Shorts: Probable for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cecil Shorts (hamstring) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Chiefs.

As is Nate Washington, which sets the stage for both players to be available Saturday to combo up with top wideout DeAndre Hopkins in the Houston Texans ' passing game in the team's playoff opener.
