Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans are unlikely to use their tag on A.J. Bouye or anyone else from the team. If they did Bouye would make 14 million for the 2017 NFL season. The Texans are projected to have around 25 million in cap space to work with this off-season, so this move is a smart one for them. Bouye however will likely demand some nice coin. He had a wonderful season for the Texans. Remember he was an undrafted free agent from the University of Central Florida.
Bouye played in 15 games and made 11 starts for the Texans last year and led the team with 16 passes defensed.
