The Houston Texans will transition from a 4-3 to a 3-4 scheme on defense next season. And with that, some personnel evaluators wonder how well starting DE Mario Williams will fit in, but not the Texans.
“Go back to when (new defensive coordinator) Wade (Phillips) was in Buffalo and he had (DE) Bruce Smith,” Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said. “We see it a lot that way. What we will do with Mario obviously, his hand can go down, his hand can come up. Come off the edge. But it’s our job as coaches to put Mario in the best position to make plays. I see him doing a lot of things. I think he will give Wade some flexibility.”
