DeVier Posey Has No Ill-Will Towards Texans – By P.D. Starr of Scout.com
"The three-year period for DeVier Posey with the Houston Texans was filled with promise, disappointment, and unfinished business when all was said and done. Posey arrived to the Texans in 2012 from Ohio State University after only catching 12 passes in his final season. Serving a five game NCAA suspension for selling memorabilia and accepting payment, the Texans still took a chance on Posey in the draft.“I am forever indebted to (Gary) Kubiak and his staff and the player personnel staff that brought me in the third round,” said Posey in an interview on Sports Talk 790. “Gave me shot to be in the this league. I really appreciate the Houston Texans family for all of that.”As a rookie, his career took time to get off the ground and Posey made an impact late in the 2012 season during the final four regular season games which saw him haul in 14 receptions, averaging 14.5 yards a catch. In the Divisional Playoff game against the New England Patriots, he provided a spark with three receptions for 47 yards and a touchdown, but that all came a halt when Posey tore his Achilles in the back of the end zone late in that game."

Houston Texans 2015 Training Camp Profile: LG Xavier Su’a-Filo – By Brian Kalchik of Rant Sports
"With the top pick in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft (No. 33 overall), the Houston Texans boosted their offensive line by selecting former UCLA offensive lineman Xavier Su’a-Filo. Su’a-Filo entered the 2014 season as the favorite to win the left guard position as a rookie, but lost the job in training camp to Ben Jones and didn’t see the field much at all in 2014.The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Su’a-Filo started at left tackle as an 18-year old true freshman for the Bruins before losing two years of football while serving a Mormon mission trip. He returned to the Bruins and made 27 more starts, 21 at left guard and six at left tackle.With Jones replacing Chris Myers at center, the left guard position is Su’a-Filo’s to lose in 2015. As a rookie in 2014, Su’a-Filo played a total of 130 snaps, making one start at right guard against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6. For the 2014 season, Pro Football Focus graded Su’a-Filo at minus 8.5, including a minus 5.4 grade in his lone start against the Colts."
