Texans | Stevens Target Of Criticism, Could Be Benched

Joseph Duarte, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans FS Matt Stevens has started 21 games for the Texans the past two seasons, but that run appears ready to come to an end. Stevens has been the target of criticism the past two seasons for spotty coverage, and the Texans are itching to make changes in the secondary after giving up 421 passing yards to the Titans. Stevens appears to be the most logical target. He was released in the offseason for salary-cap reasons and later re-signed for a friendlier cap number. Meanwhile, the Texans struck out in their courtship for nearly every available free-agent free safety on the market and were forced to hand the starting job back to Stevens.
