In Kenny Stills, the Texans added a receiver with a variety of skills.
Speed. Productivity. Experience. Availability.
The Dolphins dealt the veteran pass-catcher, along with offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil and a pair of draft picks to the Texans over the weekend for a trio of draft picks and offensive lineman Julien Davenport and cornerback Johnson Bademosi.
Head coach Bill O'Brien is excited to add Stills to the mix at receiver, citing Stills' "excellent speed", in addition to a few other abilities.
"He can run all the routes on the outside," O'Brien said. "I think he can play on the inside. I think he's a versatile wide receiver that can do a lot of different things. He’s got good hands, is a really good route runner, very smooth route runner, so he has a combination of speed and route running ability that, I think you guys know in being around me for a while, that I really like having on the team."
Stills started his career as a 5th-round pick of the Saints in 2013. The Oklahoma-product caught a combined eight touchdown passes in two seasons with New Orleans, averaging 16.5 yards per catch. In four seasons with the Dolphins, he averaged six touchdown catches per season, and 47 of the last 48 games in Miami.
