Texans WR Chris Conley gets off to fast start

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Texans veteran wide receiver Chris Conley displayed his superior athleticism Saturday night against the Green Bay Packers.

Conley consistently created separation, catching three passes for 36 yards from starter Tyrod Taylor on the Texans' opening drive at Lambeau Field. 

Conley also caught a 17-yard pass on third down for a first down on a pass from rookie quarterback Davis Mills, finishing with four receptions for 51 yards on four targets.

Signed to a one-year, $1.5 million contract that includes a $250,000 signing bonus, Conley, 28, has run the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds and a 45-inch vertical leap.

Conley has 191 career receptions for 2,484 yards and 13 touchdowns. He caught 40 passes for 471 yards and two touchdowns last season for Jacksonville.

He was a 2015 Kansas City third-round draft pick from Georgia before spending the past two seasons in Jacksonville.
