Bill O’Brien on Brock Osweiler: “We wish Brock the best”

It’s become more clear why giving up a second round pick just to trade Brock Osweiler was completely worth it.

A report from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk as well as 120 Sports came out on Sunday stating that Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien and quarterback Brock Osweiler got into a physical altercation during halftime of their week 17 loss to the Tennessee Titans last season.

Bob McClain of the Houston Chronicle caught up with O’Brien on Sunday and he was asked about the alleged incident.

The report that Osweiler and O’Brien ended up getting into a physical altercation completely explains why the Texans were so desperate to get rid of Osweiler and his contract that they gave the Cleveland Browns a second round pick to take him off of their hands.

I’m sure the alleged altercation negatively affected the rest of the team as well.  I’m not sure how any teammate of Osweiler’s could respect him after that.

I would imagine that Osweiler’s exit will make the Texans better next season just because of addition by subtraction.  Not only was his play bad, but he acted classless and not like an NFL team would expect a player to act whether he was recently benched or not.

At the end of the day, it’s sad that Osweiler didn’t take responsibility for getting benched due to his poor play and was upset when he was forced to play again after Tom Savage went down with a concussion.
