The Chicago Bears will be looking into the other team's free agency situations to find out what players will be available this offseason. One team that is going through the rebuild at a faster rate but will still have roster adjustments is the Houston Texans. Who are some players on the Texans that may be available in free agency this offseason?

3. The Chicago Bears can load up on offensive line options from the Houston Texans

The Chicago Bears have to keep adding to the offensive line this offseason. The Texans have multiple options and are bound to see one of them slip into free agency. 

George Fant played 962 snaps of right tackle last year, but he also has 2,342 snaps at left tackle and 2,150 snaps at right tackle for his entire career. As a swing tackle option, he is much better suited to fill that role than Larry Borom. 

Josh Jones was a former third-round pick by the Arizona Cardinals as recently as 2020. He has not panned out with either the Texans or Cardinals, but he will only be 27 years old this offseason. Jones played 63 snaps at left guard last year but has 767 snaps at left tackle, 612 snaps at right guard, 257 snaps at right tackle, and the 63 left guard snaps. 

Overall, his versatility, youth, athletic potential, and draft pedigree make him worthy of a flier this offseason. 

Michael Deiter may be the name to watch this off-season. He started his career as a guard when he was a former third-round pick with the Miami Dolphins. However, in 2021, he got 546 snaps at center, and in 2023, he had up to 766 snaps. 

He has 1,312 snaps at center, and 980 snaps at left guard, with 50 left tackle snaps. He is just 27 years old and coming off of one of the better years of his career. Would he fill the Chicago Bears' massive hole at center?

Lastly is Charlie Heck. Heck started four games at right tackle last year and has 1,316 snaps at right tackle for his career. He would mostly be a reserve, and he only has right-side experience, so this is not as desired as the others. Still, the Houston Texans are bringing a lot to the table in terms of free-agent offensive line options,
