Texans Morning Huddle – 5/14 Edition


Thursday is here and Friday is right around the corner! Let’s get to starting our early weekend off right with some Texans updates!

Safety Stevie Brown at home in Houston – by Deepi Sidhu

"“It’s an impressive team,” Brown said. “One of the reasons why I wanted to come here. The defense came together very well last year and that was definitely something that factored into my decision in coming here. It’s something I believe finished good last year and it’s going to be even better this year so I wanted to come in and be a part of that.”"

 Projected 2015 starters: Houston Texans – by Chris Wesseling

"” Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer will split first-team reps throughout OTAs and ostensibly into training camp. Since Mallett is the younger player with a higher ceiling, we believe Hoyer will have to outplay him to enter Week 1 as the starter. The Texans‘ brass spent the first couple of months of the offseasonshowering praise on Mallett, an indication that their preference is for him to beat out Hoyer.”"

Why Houston Texans Should Favor Ryan Mallett as Opening Starter – Rivers McCown

"Houston head coach Bill O’Brien will have to weigh the known versus the unknown. As I’ve written a couple of times before about Ryan Mallett, I’m not sold on him as a solution for the quarterback slot."

Houston Texans Rumors: Arian Foster Being Replaced With Ezekiel Elliot in 2016 NFL Draft? – by Brandon Katz

"Planning ahead, that’s how NFL teams survive. They anticipate and address needs before they arise so they are never playing catch up. So even though running back Arian Foster rushed for 1,246 yards with eight touchdowns on a 4.8 YPC average, and even though he caught 38 passes for 327 yards and five more scores last season, the Houston Texans should already be searching for his replacement."
