Just been looking through some photos of the Texans OTA sessions and they all seem to have something written on the back of their shorts, I was intrigued to see what it was but couldn't make it out anyone any idea?

Upon further viewing it seems to be something about Take Away and Protect for both the Defence and the Offense.

Here's a link and quote explaining the two slogan's.

One apparent change for the team relates to the players’ wardrobe. A glimpse at the back of the players’ shorts reveals clear red lettering emblazoned from side to side. For the offensive players, it reads, “Protect the ball.” The defense, meanwhile, sports the motto “Take it away.” The same messages are draped on the walls of the team meeting rooms inside Reliant Stadium.

“I told you guys last year I was screaming and hollering it every week and I thought if they had to look at it every day, maybe it would help,” Kubiak said of the two slogans. “It’s all over the locker room, it’s all over their pants and if we’ve got to put it anywhere else, we will. But if our team protects the ball better, we’re going to be a better team.”
