  • Texans' Jadeveon Clowney: Skipping OTAs

    Clowney still hasn't signed his franchise tag and remains away from the team during the start of OTAs, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Clowney isn't required to be present for offseason workouts until mandatory minicamp arrives in mid-June. It's unknown how long he plans on staying away from the team as he looks to swap the franchise tag for a longer-term contract. July 15 is the deadline for the two sides to reach such an agreement.

  • Texans' Deshaun Watson: Ready for step forward

    Coach Bill O'Brien expects Watson to take a big step forward in his third NFL season, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports. "I've always said with his work ethic and his intelligence and his hunger to be better, he'll always make a jump," O'Brien said. "I've always said that I don't think there's any ceiling on Deshaun Watson."

    Watson was already quite effective in 2018, though his impressive averages of 8.2 yards per pass attempt and 5.6 per carry don't account for a league-high total of 62 sacks, which was partially a product of poor line play and partially a matter of holding on to the ball for too long. It didn't help that the Texans struggled to keep their wide receivers on the field, with Will Fuller (knee), Keke Coutee (hamstring), Demaryius Thomas (Achilles) and Bruce Ellington (undisclosed) each playing seven games or fewer. The offensive line still doesn't look particularly good on paper, but first-round pick Tytus Howard might help the matter, plus Houston is optimistic about having both Fuller and Coutee ready for Week 1. For all the sacks his playing style leads to, Watson also creates frequent long gains when he dodges pass rushers rather than throwing the ball away or settling for a dump-off. The 23-year-old should be able to refine his approach without straying too far from his aggressive instincts, assuming his supporting cast isn't just the DeAndre Hopkins Show and little else for a second straight season.

  • Texans' Justin Reid: Making progress post-surgery

    Reid (wrist) is making good progress in his recovery from January surgery, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

    The 2018 third-round pick started 12 of 16 games as a rookie and quickly emerged as one of the more reliable players in an inconsistent Houston secondary. He may see fewer tackle opportunities playing next to hard-hitter Tashuan Gipson instead of the rangier Tyrann Mathieu, but Reid should still have plenty of chances to make big plays, as Houston's intimidating front seven consistently pressures quarterbacks. The second-year safety seems to be on track for full medical clearance before the start of training camp.
