With training camp closing in, the Houston Texans will be faced with some tough decisions with their roster heading into week 1. I know this may be premature talk but the reality has to set in, NFL teams are always looking for the younger and cheaper options for their teams. Last season, the Texans were able to have rookies, both drafted and undrafted, make an impact on the season...

The period of time between the end of OTAs and the official start of training camp is yet another relatively dead period for most NFL teams and players. Some however do manage to stay in the news for all the wrong reasons. Just yesterday, CB Eric Wright of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was charged with a DUI, the latest in an offseason full of drunk driving football players. In just...
According to Arthur Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com, there is “zero chance” that the Houston Texans will sign quarterback Matt Schaub to a contract extension before the end of the 2012 season.

Born in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, Watt grew up a...
The Houston Texans are coming into the 2012 season as one of the most promising and heartbreaking teams of 2011. They’re promising because they have a solid foundation that managed to win ten games in the regular season last year, as well as one playoff game. They’re heartbreaking because of all of the injuries sustained during the season. Indeed, player health was a major setback...

Scheduled to make $7 million this season, Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub isn’t sweating the fact that he’s entering the final year on his contract at 31-years-old.
That could be due to the fact that despite an impressive résumé, which includes a pair of 4,000-yard seasons, one in which he also led the league in passing yards and become the Pro Bowl MVP (2009), he...
