The Texans apparently want to beef up the receiver position.  Per a league source, they brought seven of them to Houston on Tuesday for a workout.

The guys who got a look-see were Adrian Arrington, Deon Butler, Brandon Carswell, Jerrell Jackson, Titus Ryan, DeMarco Sampson, and Jordan Shipley (pictured).

The Texans also tried out quarterbacks Josh Johnson and Stephen McGee, presumably for the purposes of throwing to the receivers.

Houston currently has five receivers on the roster:  Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter, DeVier Posey, Keshawn Martin, and Lester Jean.  Jeff Maehl is on the team’s practice squad.
