Jason Vander Laan, our 38th ranked tight end, is best suited to
be a primary backup. We project he will end up with the Houston Texans because they
could use a player of this quality after losing Adam Shaheen for an extended period of time. The Texans
currently have 3 healthy tight ends, and 1 is
rated better than Vander Laan: (Jordan Akins).
The Texans currently have no
tight ends under contract beyond the 2026 season,
so Vander Laan may only be getting a short term deal, considering his age, with the team.
