Still out on the free agent market, sources say that wide receiver Keenan McCardell is in talks with both the Texans and the Redskins. McCardell was let go by the Chargers in early spring, and has already visited the Texans, three weeks ago, and word is he is now in active negotiations with Washington.
McCardell started his career with the Redskins, and after that bounced around to quite a few teams, among those including the Jaguars, Buccaneers and Browns. Last year he caught 36 passes for 437 yards. He didn’t play much late in the season, as the Chargers went with younger recievers. He also didn’t catch a TD pass for the first time since 1994.
The longtime vet would be returning home if he went to Houston, and he likely would be a decent possession receiver that could take some of the burden off of stud wide out Andre Johnson. McCardell has 62 career TD’s, and five 1,000-yard seasons. He also has seven seasons in which he has caught 70 or more passes.
