Houston Texans Sign Wide Receiver

The Houston Texans are snatching up a former Pittsburgh Steelers pass catcher. According to KPRC2's Aaron Wilson, the team is signing wide receiver Steven Sims.

Sims hauled in 14 receptions for 104 yards at an underwhelming 4.5 yards per target with the Steelers last year. He hasn't been especially productive in recent years, but that may have something to do with the depth of the Steelers' receiving corps; over the past two seasons, he has had to compete with Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool, George Pickens, and Juju Smith-Schuster for snaps.

Sims entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent, initially catching on with the Washington Commanders in 2019, where he had his best years so far. He nabbed 61 receptions for 575 yards and five touchdowns over his first two seasons. He'll probably have to compete in training camp and preseason to land a WR3 or WR4 role with the Texans.
