The Houston Texans have announced when their training camp will begin, as it hopefully is a new era of winning football for the franchise.

Houston’s training camp will begin on July 21 for the rookies, and July 25 for veterans at the Methodist Training Center in Houston.

This training camp maybe is one of the most important for the Texans, starting with having a new head coach, Bill O’Brien running the show, along with seeing if Jadeveon Clowney will be healthy enough for a full training camp.

Also there is th question of how well Arian Foster will hold up, and how will Ryan Fitzpatrick pick up the system of the O’Brien offense since he’s already been named the starter.

There is a backup quarterback competition, and how will Brooks Reed transition over to being an inside linebacker full-time. Plus there is the health of Reed as well, with two leg injuries the past two seasons. Can he avoid a season-ending injury this season?

All of that and I didn’t mention the Andre Johnson situation.

If nothing else, training camp will be a lot more interesting than it was last season, because there are many questions for this team that is trying to reset what all went wrong in their 2-14 season from last year.

What are your feelings as we get closer to training camp?
