Offseason dates of interest
 
Howdy y'all,

I get to this point every year after the season ends, what's next?

Does anyone have a link, or the entire thing in their head, for the off-season, all the way to the first regular game?

Thanks in advance! :)

Week 1 & 2 will be typical uber-meaningless games, but will be fun for me, in NC to maybe get a chance to show up to a game. Week 2 being maybe a good 1st quarter test of our D.

Week 3 might have an opportunity to see who starts at QB for us, as by this time, Schaub's situation should be apparent.

Week 4 --- keep Jared Allen away from Schaub!

I don't think any starters play in week 4 so Schaub nor Allen will be playing.

OTAs

May 21-22, 24, 29-31, June 4-7

Minicamp

June 12-14

I'm guessing training camp will begin July 27. The Texans usually start camp about 15 days before the first preseason game.

When is rookie camp? Isn't is this weekend (5/4/12) or is it next weekend (5/11/12)?

The Texans don't have a rookie minicamp. They're the only team not to have a rookie camp.

Instead, what happens is that during the mandatory minicamp in June, Kubiak gives the veterans time off and works with the rookies then. He's been doing that for a long time now, maybe as long as he's been head coach of the Texans.

Actually, we are currently in phase two of our voluntary workouts. Phase one was in mid April. Guess how many didn't show up? None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The ENTIRE TEAM showed. This locker room is clicking on all systems go.

So OTAs start next Monday? Is that when the rookies take the field for the first time?

I believe so.

I think the rookies come in this weekend for some classes and an introduction. Then they hit the field with the vets.

Will they be open to the public? Or is that only training camp??

Haven't heard/read anything about that. I think it's just TC.

Any official word on when training camp is this year, or how tickets will be distributed? I will be in Houston from July 16-26 and I would love to go.

Looks like you're out of luck. Training camp begins July 27. The public viewing dates for training camp will be announced by the team in mid-July.
