There are any number of ways to measure the caliber of a sports franchise, and right now the Houston Texans check the right boxes. First, the value of the team is estimated by Forbes to be at around $2.5 billion, which is by far the most of any Houston team and the seventh-highest valuation in the National Football League. Second, owner Bob McNair has committed the resources to winning, making Bill O'Brien one of the higher-paid coaches in the league and sinking several tens of millions of dollars into signing bonuses for free agents this past offseason, most notably quarterback Brock Osweiler and running back Lamar Miller. The team is positioned to win, and win soon. Third, the Texans are extremely active in numerous charitable endeavors throughout the Houston community through the Houston Texans Foundation, setting a tone of generosity and community awareness that permeates their roster.
