No one is staying as late after practices and getting as much extra work as Texans rookie WR Devier Posey. He's also doing a little writing for houstontexans.com (http://www.houstontexans.com) in the form of a rookie diary. Here are his first two installments:

DeVier Posey Rookie Diary: Life in NFL training camp 7/31/12 (http://www.houstontexans.com/news/article-2/DeVier-Posey-Rookie-Diary-Life-in-NFL-training-camp/38f24472-7a2f-4694-8ca3-4083907d7f87)

Through three days of training camp, I can already see that itís going to be a grind. Itís been almost four months since Iíve been drafted, and in those four months, itís been all work. Itís definitely a lot different than college. This is your job, and you need take it a lot more serious. Iím enjoying that part, though, and enjoying playing football for a living. Itís fun, and itís always been something Iíve looked forward to.

For me, itís big just to be able to go into training camp and know that Iím going to be playing in the first game...

Itís the third week of camp, and weíre getting into game preparation. Thatís fun, just to get ready to go up against somebody besides our defense. I feel the season getting closer and closer. In preseason, I just want to make sure all my assignments are right and continue to get better every single week and every single day and just become a pro.

My first time traveling as a pro last week was fun. Traveling with teams is the same just about everywhere. The police escort to the airplane...

Has anyone who did the rookie diary thing lasted more than a couple of seasons with the team...?? Didn't Darius Walker do one also?? He didn't last long either.

This is our version of the Madden curse.

I don't think walker did that. I could be wrong, but he had more if s correspondence piece called Wednesdays with walker.

I believe Casey did the rookie diary though.

Where was this guy in the 49ers game? It was like playing 'Where's Waldo?'


Think he'll get put on the practice/developmental team, or worse get cut?

Ready to make plays - 8/29 (http://www.houstontexans.com/news/article-2/devier-posey-rookie-diary-ready-to-make-plays/46199b2d-318b-4849-a0f7-d724bcfb0adb)
Iím supposed to be playing a lot in our last preseason game on Thursday, so I just want to finally get out there and catch some passes, get a nice little rhythm going. Iím just looking forward to playing. Iím excited. Iím really excited.

For me, I look at it as a chance to show the coaches that you know what youíre doing and show the veterans that you know what youíre doing. Anytime you get an opportunity, youíve got to just take advantage of it.

IĎm so ready to get my first catch, man. Iím beyond ready. I want one so bad. I have faith in the process of just learning and things happening for a reason. The way I feel now and the way I prepare Ė maybe it being partly because I donít have a catch Ė I want to just keep working and keep working and keep working and keep working. Thereís no secret to it: The more work you put in, the better youíll be. I know that Iíve got a lot of good potential, but potential is just something that you arenít yet, so I want to be able to be that at some point this year or whenever.

Iím feeling fine now after I strained a muscle in my leg last week...
...
I appreciate all the fan support. Just keep on supporting us and supporting me, and weíll get it done for you, and Iíll make sure I do my part, too.

Great to see him making plays. Although did not like his fumble, reception after hard run for TD was great. Hope to see him more in the regular season.

Go Posey!!!

Go Texans!!!
