Default Antwan Peek interview on 610

A few points in case you didn't just here. He's agreed to the tenure the Texans have offered. Don't know all the details, but they (John and Lance) said it would be something in the neighborhood of 1st round money. Also, Peek will be playing Right Defensive End and want him in the size range in Dwight Freeney (265/270lb Range). He said he played last year at 262 with 18% body fat. He wants to play leaner. In the new scheme, he's suppose to rush every down. He will complete against Babin for the Starting right end position.

Thanks for sharing. I have no idea, but 18% body fat seems like an inordinate amount to be carrying around for a speed guy.

Hence, the fact that he wants to play leaner. I think he can still be a good pass rusher if we simply use his abilities properly. He and Babin both had way to much thinking, and way to little just using their natural ability in that messed up D we tried to run. If they both simply play Dline, with a concentration on rushing the passer, we will be fine. I see Peek replacing Weaver on passing downs, with Weaver moving inside to tackle.

Excellent news, curious to see what he signed for if it's first round money.

This is the part that caught my eye the most. Having Peek motor for the quarterback on every down is something that he'll be great at. Like players have said, Peek has one speed...and that's full throttle.

18% body fat is about what the average 25 year old male Non-Athlete carry's ....That number in itself tells me the guy isnt tapping into his full potential .... most elite athlete's are easily under 10% and some approach the 6-7% range .... but that is an extreme.

That's way too low, 10-12%'s probably about right because the 6-7% range is for swimmers, runners, bikers, etc.... There's no way he could play at that range w/out getting injured. Fat = padding for joints and organs.

18%, quite a bit for an athlete. Unless your a lineman, I would think that any football player should play at 12-15, at most.

Peek should be a nice RDE this is where he should excell and use his relentless attacking speed & strength.

I would also like to see the Texans give Babin a whirl at MLB, his side line to side line speed and short shuttle would seem to indicate he could play the position & come thru the middle on delay'ed blitz packages.

Wong will be late coming into camp, due to injury rehab so the WLB might be Greenwood with Polk SLB

Peek will likely enter the season at 255-260 and that will be just fine. R. Smith coached J. Taylor who is a thin 245-250. Peek does need to lean up and really hit the squats, cleans, press. He should be just fine coming off the weak edge. I doubt he loses the competition to Babin unless Babin really gets after it this offseason.

That's freaking sweet we got Antwan back. Watching him rush the QB is going to be fun.

Peek also eluded to the fact that playing end in the 4-3 and going back to his natural positon at end allows him to be in a 3 point stance compared to an upright position at OLB, which is more comfortable to him and it also allows him to utilize his speed moves and techniques coming off the edge. Peek also said when in the 3-4 and in his upright position, by the time he would commit to going after the quarterback, the lineman would already be ready for the move he wanted to make since there was no element of suprise.

Ok Babin at MLB would not be bad to see, but he is our backup pass rusher, and I dont think Pettway or Andersen can really beat him out. Polk has not yet been resigned and he would play MLB. Orr is already penciled in as the strongside starter. I personally would like to test babin there since we could get a 3rd round DE or a first round super freak to handle the DE position that would be just as good. If not Troy Evans or a rookie should handle the MLB till Wong is ready. If Evans was just more athletic he would be a terror for our defense, but he should be cheap to bring back, a solid STeamer, and he can play the MLB position quite well since he is good in hash to hash coverage.

Now that is an interesting idea (Babin at MLB) that I had not thought of. Maybe the new staff will give him a look there as you suggest.

You might be on to something with Babin a MLB, I wouldn't mind seeing the experiment with that combo or Deshaun Polk there as well.

This is because Peek doesn't understand the 3-4, which is pretty succesful aroung the league. You've got 3 defensive linemen. with 2 OLB on the line. The hard thing to figure out from the 3-4, is who the five men are that will be rushing the QB. If the five are going to be the five from the defensive line everytime, then it isn't much of a surprise. The trick, is to get your man to think he has to account for the ILB, or the DB... If you rush him straight up from the line, chances are you're only suppose to occupy that guy. Take all his attention. Allowing the ILB/DB to get into the backfield and cause Havok.

Peek was offered the mid-level RFA tender ($1.6 million) which gives the Texans first right of refusal and compensation of a first round pick if he signs elsewhere. Don't get the term "first round tender" (the mid level tender) confused with first round money. Peek (if he in fact signed the tender) will make $1.6 million for one season.
