NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Houston Texans Maria Lysaker-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Texans have been eliminated from the NFL Playoffs in 2022. Many players however still have something to play for. The last few weeks of the season are the last opportunity for pending free agents to put their play on tape in order to improve their marketability heading into contract negotiations with their current or next team.

The Cleveland Browns have plenty of pending free agents as well. Will the Browns be interested in any of the Texans players currently set to hit free agency?

Three former Browns players are set to hit free agency after spending time in Houston: G Justin McCray, SS M.J. Stewart, and CB Tavierre Thomas.

Every single player currently set to hit free agency for the Texans is an unrestricted free agent. Here is a list of all pending free agents in Houston along with their current ages:
