Saw this over at NFL.com. A little love for Braman and Weeks.

Bryan Braman, Houston Texans: When Bobby King joined the Texans' coaching staff as a defensive assistant last offseason, one of the first things he did was recommend that Houston sign Braman, an undrafted free agent whom King had coached at West Texas A&M University. Braman had some off-field issues during his collegiate days, but King guaranteed he would keep Braman on the straight and narrow and even had the rookie live with him for part of the 2011 season. This addition certainly paid off. Braman has outstanding size and speed. He's the first man down the field on kickoffs and does a fantastic job holding up blockers on punt return.

Jon Weeks, Houston Texans: Back in 2009, Weeks was working at a hospital in Phoenix when Jake Delhomme entered the building after suffering an injury in a game against the Arizona Cardinals. After speaking with Weeks, Delhomme encouraged the former Baylor long snapper to attend a kicking camp with NFL scouts present and see if he could catch on with a team. One thing led to another and the Texans scooped him up for the 2010 campaign. Weeks is smaller than your average NFL long snapper at 5-foot-10, but he covers very well. And in six years -- four at Baylor, two at Houston -- he's never had a bad snap.
