Texans' snap-count analysis: cornerbacks

The Wednesday editions or our series examining playing time and salary-cap allocation turn now to the defensive backfield.


Of this group, Jackson is the only one scheduled to hit free agency. When active for games, he played more than any other corner, though Jackson missed three games to injury. He played outside and then slid inside when the defense called for a slot corner. Jackson spent last offseason learning the position and did well, offering that versatility to the Texans. Mack was only on the roster for a short period of time, released on Oct. 28, about the time when the Texans picked up Rolle. Hal, a rookie seventh-round draft pick, had plenty of playing time early in the season, but played saw five snaps in the last seven games.
