There is a lot of negativity when it comes to the Houston Texans these days, but with a fresh start ahead, there are many things to look forward as training camp 2021 has arrived, because it is that … a fresh start, or better yet, a new beginning.
There is more new than old when it comes to the 2021 Houston Texans, and though the wins will most likely be as scarce as they were a season ago, there is still plenty of competition and new faces to look forward to this upcoming training camp in a few short weeks.
Houston has a roster that won’t closely resemble last season’s 4-12 team with veterans signing with other teams, a quarterback who has off-the-field issues, a new interior offensive line and a lot of new players on the defensive side of the ball.
There are also rookies we can be excited for, and through all of that, the new head coach David Culley, new defensive coordinator Lovie Smith and other new coaches on the staff will bring their style of football to the team in 2021, which is a welcome change from what we all witnessed a season ago.
Next, training camp is here and a new – and unique – season of Houston Texans football is about to take place. Here are five things to look forward to at training camp as a new era of Texans football begins.
5. Houston Texans: A fresh start of sorts
What might be the most exciting part of Texans training camp is there is a fresh start to the franchise, and it is time to forget about the four-win season of 2020 and all that took place during that season, and since then, during this past offseason.
It is still tough to look past all that is going on with Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson as that situation isn’t finalized, but with it being 2021 training camp, there are familiar faces that aren’t around anymore, and lots of changes within the coaching staff, front office and roster have been made as well.
The Houston Texans do need a fresh start after an offseason that included a new GM hire, a new head coach hire and more roster changes than most NFL teams. There are still questions at QB of course, but with little to any positive expectations from outside the organization, the Texans will have the freshest of starts in ’21, and there will be no other way to build back this franchise than up.
