Nico Collins expects the Texans to have a “dangerous passing attack” in 2024.

It is It’s rare for teams to feel complete during organized team activities (OTAs), but the Houston Texans might feel like an exception as May begins 20th century Return date.

At least that is How wide receiver Nico Collins feels about a revamped passing attack centered around Offensive Rookie of the Year CJ Stroud after showing promise en route to the AFC South Division title.

And Collins, the NFL’s 2023 breakout pass catcher believes the seventh-ranked passing attack will only get better this fall thanks to another offseason collaboration with Stroud and Tank Dell.

Well, there’s also four-time Pro Bowl receiver Stefon Diggs.

IIt is gets dangerous, really dangerous, man,Collins told KPRC2 SportsAaron Wilson during his youth football camp Saturday morning at Houston Christian High School.Add Diggs to the room, It is become Be a lot of weapons. There are There will be great opportunities for everyone.

“TThe sky is the limit for us.”

Collins shined as Texan He will become the go-to weapon in 2023, becoming the third player in franchise history to reach more than 1,200 receiving yards in a single season. He was well on his way to breaking Andre Johnson’s Single-season record (1,572), but a calf strain sidelined him for two games in early December.

However, the Texans feel like a team ready to build on last fall’s success It is It’s always easy to say it out loud. Living up to the hype on matchdays is the challenge to emulate.

Countless franchises across the league have traded up their passers on rookie deals in the expectation of securing a spot in the Super Bowl, but they fell short.

Los Angeles added pieces around Justin Herbert and never advanced past the wild card round. Miami built an offense to turn Tua into Carter Tagovailoas Strengths and followed a similar path to the Chargers, although Mike McDaniel is still employed and heading into a crucial third year.

Houston hopes so not suffers a similar fate and hopes to overtake Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City in the postseason. You’d think the Texans would want to follow them Cincinnati Formula with Joe Burrow, who in his second season defeated Mahomes and the Chiefs for the AFC crown.

In 2021, Burrow entrusted three explosive receivers Yes’Marr Chase, Tyler Boyd and tea Higgins to secure a spot in the Super Bowl. With the arrival of Diggs, who has led the league in catches (445) since 2020, Stroud now has a similar arsenal.

“I I feel like the offense has a lot of weapons. Everyone has a chanceCollins said.When the ball is in their hands, explosive play ensues. I feel How, for us, We have to keep working on the details, keep being ourselves, keep having fun and show the world what we can do. I tilt wait for it.”

While Diggs was the Low season valuable acquisition, he was not the only target used for lifting Strouds Pay. The Texans traded a seventh-round pick to Cincinnati to sign running back Joe Mixon and later signed him to a three-year extension worth $27 million.

The 27-year-old Mixon is coming off his fourth 1,000-yard campaign but increased his value as a short-yardage pass-catcher with 52 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns.

Houston also brought back tight end Dalton Schultz on a three-year, $36 million extension before free agency began. Last month, the Texans added depth during the draft with Cade Stover, a familiar face. Strouds Top tight end at Ohio State.

Collins, who is Anyone heading into a contract season knows this Houston’s no longer considered league Mockery. He was part of the reconstruction which In two consecutive years, two coaches were fired and offensive performance was poor.

The Texans are built win. This also applies to the rest of the AFC South after an aggressive free agency period. The former Michigan receiver knows the division will be a challenge Also understands that Houston has a personality to wear.

He not I’ll watch as the regression sets inboth individually and in a team.

“TThe only way is up,Collins said.(We) tilt go, tilt go back. Gotta step up. That is my current mindset.”
