Texans’ Mini-Camp: Culture Shock
Voluntary Mini-Camp Day One
- It was Bill O’Brien‘s first day on the field with his new team and they hit the ground running. There was a hands on approach from O’Brien as he walked around to position groups and...
- Linebackers coach Mike Vrabel is a breath of fresh air and coached outside linebacker...
- Romeo Crennel is an interesting sight on the field. Full of smiles and shook hands with anyone and everyone he saw, but when practice started he was...
- All of the new free agents signed were at practice. Chris Clemons, Kendrick Lewis, Zach Potter, Paul Hazel, Ricardo Matthews, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jerrell Powe were just an indication on how much has changed in less than a year.

Bonner was catching everything in his vicinity and started the young football season with a quality day.
- New tight end Zach Potter comes in at 6-7 and 269 lbs. and he is a big target at the position. Right now working with Garrett Graham and Ryan Griffin, Potter will be an interesting to watch.

-Ryan Fitzpatrick, T.J. Yates and Case Keenum dove into the new offense under O’Brien. Quarterbacks coach George Godsey was...
-Andre Johnson was absent from the first day of minicamp, but there should be no real reason for concern for it.
- Side note: The Texans have changed the offense to blue practice tops and the defense to white. Also the quarterback are in red jerseys.
