The Texans' wide receiver depth chart now consists of Amendola, fellow ex-Patriot Brandin Cooks, Anthony Miller, Nico Collins, Chris Conley, and Andre Roberts. Tyrod Taylor is set to begin the season as Houston's starting quarterback.

Amendola spent five seasons (2013-17) with the Patriots, helping them to two Super Bowl titles. The 35-year-old totaled 230 catches for 2,383 yards and 12 touchdowns during his tenure in Foxboro. He also had a knack for coming through in the playoffs, tallying 57 catches for 709 yards and six touchdowns, plus two passing TDs, in 13 postseason games.

Last season with the Detroit Lions, Amendola hauled in 46 catches for 602 yards in 14 games.
