Default Brandon Brooks Shaping Up!

Saw this over ate Texans official web site and didn't see it posted anywhere else: http://www.houstontexans.com/news/ar...c-a7f25d6071d2 It's definitely a good sign. There should be some good competition at camp this year, especially if they draft another OG. Wade Smith better be ready to fight for his roster spot this season.

Good info. I think he starts RG with Jones backing. With a bit of permance our Oline will be much better and grow stronger this season.

Good. Looking forward to seeing it.

Wonder what his forty time is now. Hopefully he can show some skill on the field...

Down to 325 lbs, that's great news, sounds like he's coming into the upcoming season with the right attitude.
So I wonder where does this leave Ben Jones, the teams starting RG beginning 'bout mid year and lasting thru the playoffs last season ? Does Brooks & Jones become the starters at guard and they release Wade Smith, or are the starters Brooks and Smith and Jones is the backup at center & guard ?

This is the best news of the offseason. I was about to post a thread pointing out how he was the link in the chain that needed to be fixed the most. Some of the problems with Schaub's confidence and with our running game started with lack of consistency and experience at right guard. If he can make the sophomore leap, the offense will be clicking again. And it would be nice to have Brooks in there to power block for Arian in the red zone.

Jones was benched late in the season ... and Brooks took over the starters spot. I dont recall if Jones started the Cincy game but I know for a fact that he didnt start the final playoff game against the Pats.

According to both NFL.com and HT.com, Jones started every game - including playoff games - from the Ravens game on.

I can't remember if Jones started or not but I do remember the Texans saying something about having Brooks play since he was bigger and might be able to handle Wolfolk a little more. Jones doesn't have the "sand" in his seat, so to speak, to handle the bigger NT's. Plus he may not have had the upper body strength then that he needed to play in the NFL. Hopefully that will be remedied by the beginning of this season.
