Breakfast: Tight ends set franchise records in 2016


The tight end group for the Houston Texans set records in 2016.

Between C.J. Fiedorowicz, Ryan Griffin and rookie Stephen Anderson, the Texans tight ends combined to catch 115 passes for 1,094. Both of those marks were the highest totals in franchise history for a tight end group.

It was a sharp contrast to the previous two seasons.

In 2014, the quartet of Griffin, Fiedorowicz, Garrett Graham and J.J. Watt snared a combined 35 passes for 420 yards and six scores. Three of those touchdowns came in goal line situations to Watt. 


The numbers rose slightly in 2015, as Griffin, Fiedorowicz and Graham together caught 41 passes for 448 yards.

Fiedorowicz and Griffin both set career highs in 2016. The former had 54 receptions for 559 yards and four touchdowns, while the latter hauled in 50 catches for 442 yards and a pair of scores.

The previous high-water mark for combined tight end catches in a season came in 2013, with 92. The highest yardage total in Texans history by a tight end group was 2010, when the tight ends combined for 1,087 yards.
