Default Bradford Working to Impress

Quote:
Now entering his seventh NFL season, the Texans explosive receiver has been spending the few months of down time in his Houston home. Bradford hasn't taken any extravagent vacations or spent time in a secluded getaway destination. In fact, he's spent almost just as many hours in the Texans weight room this spring than he did during the regular season.

"Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I would usually do upper body, chest, arms, triceps and back," Bradford explained about his off-season workout routine. "Tuesdays and Thursdays I was running or going through a lower body workout."

Bradford posted an impressive 19.2-yard average in 2003, which set a club record. While his 24 grabs for 460 yards and four touchdowns, including a 78-yarder in the Texans season opening win over Miami, were signifcant contributions to the Texans offense, Bradford is ready to blow up the the passing lanes even more in 2004.

"We want to just really improve this year and go out and play football and try not to lose those games that we had a chance at winning last year," he said. "Personally, I want to go out and get more opportunities to make more plays. I want to get involved a little bit more and I really just want to show what I can do this year."

We've only seen a glimpse of what the speedy and graceful Bradford is capable of accomplishing. His 10 touchdowns as a Texan have yielded a 48.1-yard average, topping the NFL over the past two seasons.

Interesting tidbits: Bradford only played one year of college ball and was timed at one point at a 4.2 40.

Nothing like a contract year to help focus a player. I LOVE the explosivness he brings and would be ecstatic if he became the consistant player we are all looking for at the #2 spot. If he ever puts it together for us we would be hell on wheels with him and AJ stretching the defense and DD running, but I will have to see it to believe it.

If Bradford can put up 800+ yards and 7+ TD's, rumours of his demise could be grossly exagerated.

Like to hear all the enthusiasm from the team. Seems like everyone that is quoted is incredibly optimistic and that they are making real efforts to gel and work in the off-season. Having a team that is a team rather than 53 guys that come together for 20 weeks of the year can't hurt and may pay a big dividend during crunch times.

If he improves his hands and routes, he would be a great receiver. He is probably the fastest man on the team.

I think we have always known he has the tools to succeed. The question is "Does he know how to use them to succeed?". I would love to see a more concentration catching and being more alert of the DB's so he can adjust his routes.
