With the third and final week of offseason OTAs wrapping up, the Houston Texans also announced they would be having some changes to their training camp in July/August.

The Texans, as reported on ESPN.com said they will practice against the Denver Broncos and the Atlanta Falcons in training camp.

Here is what ESPN wrote:

"“(The Texans will) host Atlanta on Wednesday, Aug. 13 and Thursday, Aug. 14. The following week the Texans will travel to Colorado for three joint practices at the Broncos’ facility.”"

It is good to see the Texans changing things up a bit this season with training camp, because it is the first time they’ve done such a thing since 2010.

What I like about wan teams branch out and practice against others is the fact the coaches an see where they compare against other competition, plus it has to be more fun for the players to practice against a different opponent instead of their teammates.

Plus facing Peyton Manning can always help a team see where they are at in terms of their offseason preparation.
