National Football Post: Houston Texans Have Lost The Most In Free Agency

This isn't a list that the Houston Texans wanted to see themselves on. Dan Pompei of the National Football Post offered up his thoughts on the teams that lost the most in free agency this year, and the Texans top that list.

I've always maintained teams frequently are hurt more by the players they lose in free agency than teams are helped by the players they add. With that in mind, these are the teams that have been hurt the most so far. We are not considering additions in this judgment, merely losses.

1. Texans. They easily have lost more talent than any other team, including the best young player to change teams in Mario Williams. Three players who could have been considered core guys left in Williams, Eric Winston and DeMeco Ryans, who was traded. The Texans took a hit on depth too.

The Texans certainly do belong on this list, if for no other reason than losing Mario Williams.

Houston fans can take some solace in the fact that the Ravens, one of the more consistent teams in the league, also appear on this list.
