    Not sure if this is in the right section, but do the Texans hold tryouts ?


    And if they do, does anyone have any details about them ?

    I think you missed the deadline.....cheerleading tryouts were a few months back IIRC! J/K I don't think they have open tryouts, though I could be wrong. The only instance I know of was in the movie "Invincible", where the Eagles had open tryouts. I could be way off on this though. Good luck in finding what you are looking for.

    Thanks for your input...

    I figured you'd probably have to know someone within the organization...One of my former coaches is in charge of showing the rookies around town and showing them good places to go, buy houses...ect.....

    But if anyone has any specifics on this I'd be greatly interested....

    I actually think they might hold some type of open tryout but I am not 100% sure. Of course, it is the longest of long shots. Were you interested personally, or for someone else?

    For some reason, I think it is in the spring, maybe like March or something? Maybe if you call the Texans offices they would be able to tell you?

    Thanks for the support....

    But if they do hold open try-outs I'm definitely there....I started working out about 7 months ago and I've lost 46 lbs.....I want to lose about 15 more, and train hard for the next year and then try-out for TE....I'd be 6'4" 265......with skills...lol...

    But again, thanks for the support...

    I think I would be a good 3rd string long snapper. Especially since the new rule that you can't line up over deep snappers. I could keep that bench mighty warm for a six figure salary.

    Need an agent? I know I can get you the minimum without too much negotiating but you would have to agree to show up on time. And stay away from dogs, fast cars, parties on big boats and HPD officers with tasers.

    If you are serious about it, why don't you try hooking up with the Arena league or semi-pro league, and work from there.

    I was invited to play for a semi-pro team in Cali....

    I turned it down because I make more money now, I'm in school, I take care of my grandmother and don't want to move away from my family just yet and I've had experiences playing for unorganized leauges/teams where the talent wasn't that good....

    Arena football sounds appealing, but if the Texans have any kind of open try-outs I figure why not go for the bigger stage first....If the unexpected happens (I refuse to use the words 'not make it') then I'll probably try different avenues....

    But thanks for the advice...I absorb everything...
