  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Remaining with Texans

    The Texans have agreed to a one-year deal with Brown, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    The report indicates that the 27-year-old's deal to remain with the team includes $3 million fully guaranteed and could reach up to $4 million with incentives. Brown, who finished last season with 23 catches on 34 targets for 171 yards in 15 games, heads into the 2022 campaign with modest fantasy upside in the context of working in a tight end corps that also includes 2021 fifth-rounder Brevin Jordan.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: No targets Week 18

    Brown was not targeted in Week 18's 28-25 loss to the Titans.

    Brown earned the most playing time of Houston's tight ends in 2021, but it never translated into much worth for fantasy teams. He finished with 23 catches on 34 targets for 171 yards and zero touchdowns. Part of that was due to the shaky nature of the offense, but Brown has profiled more as a blocking tight end during his career. He becomes an unrestricted free agent, and the rebuilding Texans could probably find a less expensive replacement.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Catches lone target

    Brown caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 23-7 loss to San Francisco.

    Brown and rookie Brevin Jordan accounted for the only two balls thrown to Houston tight ends Sunday. This was the eighth time in 14 games that Brown's finished with fewer than 10 yards.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Catches two balls in win

    Brown caught two of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 41-29 win over the Chargers.

    Brown, as is customary, led Houston's tight ends in snaps but had little to show for it. Since a five-target/four-catch/67-yard performance in Week 1, Brown has compiled just 95 yards over the last 12 contests.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Leads TEs in snaps

    Brown caught two of two targets for five yards in Sunday's 30-16 win over Jacksonville.

    Brown was once again the Texans' leading tight end in snaps with 45, but for the 12th time in 12 games he did not reach the end zone. After accounting for 67 yards in the season-opening win over the Jaguars, Brown has averaged just 7.7 YPG over 11 games since.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Set to play in Week 15

    Brown (illness) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Jacksonville.

    The non-COVID illness that kept Brown from practicing Thursday was evidently minor, as he returned to full participation Friday, paving the way for Brown to suit up come Sunday. He plays the majority of snaps at tight end for the Texans, but Brown's in there for his blocking skills and is rarely thrown to.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Misses practice Thursday

    Brown (illness) was absent from the Texans' practice Thursday.

    Brown -- who didn't catch a pass in Week 14 -- practiced Wednesday before popping up on the injury report Thursday as a non-participant, putting his availability for Sunday's game against the Jaguars in question. The 27-year-old led Houston's tight ends in snaps last week versus the Seahawks with 52, but if he can't go in Week 15, Antony Auclair and Brevin Jordan would likely both play larger roles at the position.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Untargeted despite snap leader

    Brown was not targeted in Sunday's 33-13 loss to Seattle.

    Brown was once again Houston's playing time leader at tight end with 52 snaps, more than Antony Auclair (22) and Brevin Jordan (29) combined, but it did not translate into meaningful fantasy production. The Texans rolled with five tight ends for the game, including former regular Jordan Akins and converted quarterback Jeff Driskel, which makes it hard to pinpoint any single option.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Makes four grabs

    Brown caught four of five targets for 23 yards but lost a fumble in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

    Brown led the Texans in receptions and trailed only Brandin Cooks in targets and yards, but he coughed the ball up following a first-quarter catch. Even though he matched his season high in grabs, his miscue Sunday damaged his overall performance. He'll strive to clean his play up next weekend versus the Seahawks.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Targeted once in loss

    Brown failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Jets.

    Brown remains Houston's top tight end in terms of playing time because of his run-blocking skills, but he's taken a back seat to rookie Brevin Jordan as a receiver. Jordan caught three passes including a touchdown Sunday while playing an equal number of snaps (34) as Brown. The rookie is part of Houston's future, while the 27-year-old Brown is on a one-year deal.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Returns to action

    Brown caught two of four targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 22-13 win over Tennessee.

    Brown missed the previous two games with a thigh injury but was able to get back on the field after Houston's bye in Week 10. His return led to the Texans making fellow veteran Jordan Akins inactive, a sign the organization has pivoted toward the future. Brown, if healthy, should have a safe role the rest of the season because he's a better blocker than Akins or Brevin Jordan, and developing a running identity has been head coach David Culley's goal all season.

  • Texans' Pharaoh Brown: Making return Week 11

    Brown (thigh) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Titans.

    After upgrading to full participation in practice Friday, Brown was cleared for a return to the lineup following a two-game, three-week absence on account of the thigh injury. Before being sidelined, Brown had served as the Texans' top tight end, playing more than half of the team's offensive snaps in each of his seven appearances. During that stretch, Brown wasn't much of a contributor in the passing game, cobbling together a 12-114-0 receiving line on 18 targets.
