A look at free agent Jared Crick by Tania Ganguli, ESPN.com
"Why he might be back: Crick’s impact on the Texans defense is not easily quantifiable. He is a cog in the machine of the Texans’ front, which allows, most notably, J.J. Watt a lot of freedom to freelance. Watt and Crick have been starters together for the past two seasons, and during that time, they’ve developed a chemistry that allows them to see things the same way."

Dak Prescott on Texans ties by Deepi Sidhu, Houstontexans.com
"Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott may be one of the best players in the history of the football program. After seeing action in four seasons with the Bulldogs, Prescott left behind 38 school records (15 career, 15 single-season, 8 single-game).“It’s very humbling,” Prescott said in an exclusive interview with Texans TV. “Going to Mississippi State, that’s something that I wanted to do, to change expectations, change the culture of winning and I think I helped do that just buying into Coach (Dan) Mullen and the program. We had a great senior class who helped. People say me but it was the senior class who helped me do it and I’m thankful.”"
