The Texans and Verizon had a nine-player caravan going around the city Wednesday, making five stops to meet and greet fans. They went to McDonald’s, Verizon, Academy, H-E-B and the Texans YMCA.
One thing I’m certain of: Gary Kubiak’s not going to hammer his guys even in one-a-day practice situations. Hard-core two-a-days are a thing of the past in the year-old CBA, but it’s not as though the Texans were getting ground down during Kubiak’s camps in the past. Houston’s summer heat is brutal. The Texans will get what Kubiak considers sufficient work in an early-morning practice, then pack the practice bubble for their afternoon walk-throughs.
Fans are so excited about the Texans this season the team has sold a record 65,801 season tickets. The previous franchise high was 64,540 in 2010.
While Terrell Owens is still trying to draw up interest from NFL teams another former Cowboys receiver, Roy Williams, is in Houston for a tryout with the Texans on Thursday, his agent Ben Dogra confirmed.
I’ve compiled a list of the top 40 Houston Texans based on the current roster, but I need to spell out how I decided to rank the players. My rankings aren’t based on overall value to the team or the ratings would start with “1. Matt Schaub, 2. Andre Johnson.”
