The Houston Texans have no plans to use the franchise tag on free-agent receiver Will Fuller, sources told Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle.

The Texans are still interested in retaining Fuller, but the wideout is likely to leave Houston if he hits the open market, Wilson reports. Deshaun Watson's dissatisfaction with the franchise is apparently among several reasons Fuller is likely to depart.

A franchise tag on the receiver would have projected to come in around $16.4 million.

Fuller is coming off a career year with personal bests in receptions (53), receiving yards (879), and touchdowns (8).

The wideout missed the last five games of the season due to suspension and will miss the 2021 season opener to complete his six-game ban.
