At the conclusion of the 2015 campaign, Watt was apparently sporting five partially or fully torn core muscles, yet the ailments didn't stop him from nabbing his third NFL Defensive Player of the Year award in a four-year span. In particular, he notched 17.5 sacks among 76 tackles last season, to which he added three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in a full 16-game slate.
Brown is optimistic that he is on track to be ready for the Houston Texans ' regular season opener, the Houston Chronicle reports.
At this stage, Brown continues to rehab from a torn quadriceps tendon that was surgically reattached in January. While the left tackle will sit out OTAs and could miss most of training camp, it's hoped that in the absence of any setbacks, come Week 1, he'll be ready and available to protect the blind side of the Texans' new franchise QB, Brock Osweiler.
Coming off a dominant season in which he collected 111 passes for 1,521 and 11 touchdowns, it shouldn't be much of a surprise the Texans were willing to pick up the option on the final year of his rookie contract. The Clemson product will remain with the team through 2017 at the very least, but the Texans will likely try to extend him prior to then. Hopkins should once again serve as the team's top wideout, but will prepare to catch passes from the recently acquired Brock Osweiler.
A.J. Bouye has signed a one year deal with the Houston Texans .
Bouye received a restricted free agent tender, so any team could make him an offer and the Texans would've been able to match, but that didn't happen. He has played with Houston for each of his first three professional seasons, though he took a bit of a step back last year. From the 2014 to the 2015 campaign, Bouye's tackles went from 59 to 16, and his interception total went from three to two. The dip in stats is associated with a drastic drop in playing time, as his defensive snap count went from 56.6 percent in 2014 to 17.7 percent in 2015. He'll be looking to rebound in the coming year, but he's still buried on the depth chart.
