Here are your daily Houston Texans stories as you kick off your Independence Day weekend:
Wilfork Poses Nude by Morty Ain, ESPN
"If you watched HBO’s “Hard Knocks” last year — or, really, if you’ve watched any football at all the past 12 seasons — you’re probably familiar with veteran tackle Vince Wilfork, as well as his wife, Bianca, who’s never far from his side. The two-time Super Bowl champ sat down with the Body Issue’s Morty Ain — and Bianca — to talk about body image, “runner calves” and schooling Randy Moss on routes."
I think it’s great to see something like this. Big guys out there need to see that just because you’re big doesn’t mean you’re unhealthy. A bit of an unorthodox choice but a good one nonetheless.

Parsons a Big Texans Fan by Deepi Sidhu, Houstontexans.com
"On television, Jim Parsons plays the part of the eccentric Sheldon Cooper on the “The Big Bang Theory.”In real life, he plays the part of an eccentric Texans fan.Parsons, a guest on Friday’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” grew up in Houston. The Klein Oak and University of Houston graduate admits he’s such big fan, he’s superstitious when it comes to his favorite team. Parsons spends his Sundays memorizing acting lines during Texans games."
While I knew that Parsons was from Houston, I did not realize he was such a huge fan. Let’s hope the Rams going to Los Angeles doesn’t steal his loyalty.
Hopkins 19th in NFL Top 100 by Brett Kollmann, Battle Red Blog
"Hopkins exploded onto the scene in 2015 with over 1,500 yards and 11 touchdowns – a Texans single season franchise record – while he claimed a litany of Pro Bowl-caliber victims like Darrelle Revis, Desmond Trufant, and Marcus Peters (twice). His body control, hands, and route running skills combined to form a nearly unstoppable production machine despite the fact that he caught passes from four different starting quarterbacks throughout the year."
Considering he was the best receiver in the league last season, he should be higher.
