Texans WR Nico Collins: Houston's offense will be 'real dangerous' in 2024 

The addition of receiver Stefon Diggs in Houston gives the Texans offense a feeling that it can be deadly from every level in 2024.

With Diggs, Nico Collins, Tank Dell, tight end Dalton Schultz and Joe Mixon out of the backfield, the Texans surrounded C.J. Stroud with weaponry to threaten a deep run in the AFC.

"Oh yeah, it's going to be dangerous, real dangerous, man," Collins said over the weekend at his youth football camp, via Aaron Wilson of KPRC2 Sports. "Adding Diggs to the room, it's going to be a lot of weapons. There's going to be great opportunities for everybody. It's only adding more depth, more weapons to the offense, more weapons to the team. The sky is the limit for us. Can't wait until the season is going to start."

On paper, the Texans offense sports a dynamic ability to win at all three levels. Collins is a field stretcher who had an excellent rapport with Stroud last season; Dell is an explosive machine when healthy; and Diggs provides a crafty veteran who can win off the line and make tough contested catches. Toss in a reliable Schultz and Mixon -- who might not hit home runs but keep the offense on schedule -- and it's an intriguing group entering the season.

"Man, it's nice. I feel like the offense is a lot of weapons," Collins said. "Everybody has got a chance. When the ball is in their hands, an explosive play is coming. I feel like, for us, we need to continue to work on the details, continue to be us, continue to have fun and show the world what we can do. I can't wait for it."

Stroud's ability to find the right read and hit his target in stride will stir Houston's drink in 2024. After surprising in 2023, if the Offensive Rookie of the Year improves in Year 2 and DeMeco Ryans' defense takes a step forward after offseason investments, look out for the Texans galloping toward the forefront in the AFC.

Houston won't be sneaking up on anyone in 2024.
