Houston Texans Offseason 2012: Gary Kubiak Admits WR Position 'Still A Concern'

In a press conference with the media after the Houston Texans OTA on Wednesday, head coach Gary Kubiak admitted that the WR position is still an issue for the team:

"It's a concern. But I like the ability we have on the team right now with the group and we've come a long way just in five days. Guys that have been on the big stage, this group hasn't but it's got the ability to go out there and do it. Lestar (Jean) is acting like a dang good player out here every day, so we just got to stay committed to them. But we'll continue to look, we'll continue to watch some of these guys that are out there and see what happens through the first of June. But we got to stay focused on this group because this might be what we go to camp and then the season with. We'll work and gotta get it done. That's our job."

Andre Johnson's lingering hamstring injury last season exposed the lack of depth the Texans have had on the outside for a few years.

However, in his comments, Kubiak did praise third round pick Devier Posey out of Ohio State as well as third-year WR Trindon Holliday. But, given that WR is one of the toughest positions to transition from out of college, it could be another barren year opposite of Johnson in 2012.
