Texans WR Lestar Jean, 24, was one of the training camp stars last summer before a shoulder injury put him on injured reserve for the season. But when given the opportunity, he lived up to his nickname “Big Play,” making impressive catches his norm. He had a couple of long catches in limited preseason action and made more in practice.
He has turned heads again this offseason making big play after big play.
Knowing all three positions should get Jean on the field sooner.
Jean has good size (6-3, 205 pounds), but he isn’t a classic stretch-the-field wideout with blazing speed (a 4.52-second 40-yard dash). Still, he gets open and makes plays on the ball, two aspects of the position with which the speedier Jacoby Jones struggled.
Jean could press Kevin Walter for snaps if he continues to impress.
