2015 Houston Texan Defense (03/26/15)
Head coach Bill O'Brian expects Jadeveon Clowney to be healthy and ready to play "sometime during training camp". If Clowney is healthy, what will the Texans defensive line look like? What will the Texans defense look like?
The Texans have the best defensive player in the NFL in DE J.J. Watt. I fully expect him to have another 20+ sack season. They just signed DT Vince Wilfork, a 5 time pro-bowler with two super bowl rings. Add a healthy Jadeveon Clowney, a 6'6", 270lb DE who runs an amazing sub 4.6 second 40 yard dash, and I believe you have the best defensive line in the NFL. This could be a defensive line that combines for 40+ sacks. The Texans have secondary help in Raheem Moore and if defensive coordinator, Romeo Crennel, can mix things up and keep teams off balance, this could be the best defensive unit in the NFL this season.
The New, and Improved, Houston Texans (03/25/15)
The Houston Texans entered the offseason $13 million under the NFL salary cap and most people didn’t expect them to make any big moves in free agency. Those people were wrong. The Texans cut veterans Chris Myers and Andre Johnson, traded Case Keenum and Ryan Fitzpatrick, re-signed Derek Newton, Kareem Jackson, and Ryan Mallet, and acquired Vince Wilfork, Brian Hoyer, Cecil Short, and Raheem Moore.
In addition, Texans management has been smart. All of the new contracts have been low risk/high reward for the Texans. Most have been two year deals that won’t affect the salary cap over time. Add J.J. Watt restructuring his contract to the mix, and the Texans look to be in really good shape for 2015. The Texans are currently $9 million under the cap with room to make a couple of more moves in free agency.
J.J. Watt keeps giving to the Texans (03/24/15)
J.J. Watt restructured his contract with the Texans to free up 8 million dollars in cap space for 2015. Watt agreed to turn his 10 million dollar roster bonus into a signing bonus. This spreads the bonus out over the course of his contract and will count 2 million per year toward the cap for the next 5 years as opposed to 10 million dollars in 2015. This move increases the Texans' free agency options considerably. This could be an indication of big news in Houston over the next few months.
