    I think this could serve as a good repository for news bits we hear from OTA's. I'll let Nick Scurfield start us off with 5 things to look for (I guess, hear about for us) during OTA's:

    Neither of these makes sense. OLB's rarely want to move to ILB. Wade said just a week ago that Sharpton hadn't been cleared for any activities. Now he is full go?

    Andre bigger, that's a scary thought :)

    I don't know if I like the idea of Andre being bigger. Seems like he would want to get lighter as he gets older.

    Okay well I don't think Palmer is just making up quotes or that other people who attended the practice are lying.

    OK, let me be the Texans Talk OTAs correspondent.

    There should be a quote sheet on Brooks coming out. I only heard part of the interview but it sounded like he was willing to do anything the team wanted him to do, and that he was working at ILB because they know that they could move him back to OLB and he'd be cool. I didn't get the impression he was dying to play ILB, but I only heard part of comments.

    Sharpton looked fine. They are going to limit him from doing special teams stuff, but he was doing drills, on-field stuff. That was the surprise of the day. Much better than showing up and finding there was a surprise surgery on a key player like has happened in the past. (IOW, very nice to see Andre Johnson doing his Andre thing).

    Dobbins I didn't see out there, nor do I think there is a quote on him. Do not want to speak out of turn though. So many interviews going on at the same time it is hard to catch them all until quote sheet comes out.

    My Twitter feed has a bunch of OTA comments: @StephStradley

    I'm not sure that Andre looked bigger to me. He looked like Andre.

    PR said that the weights listed on roster sheet were accurate. Andre listed at 229 on roster sheet which is pretty much his normal 230 figure that is usually given for his weight.

    For the first time ever, I asked a player for a avatar snapshot, and they asked not to do it. Which is sort of silly because I can take all sorts of pictures they don't pose for, but OTOH, I'm not sure I'd want to pose for a pic after practice because ugh, hot.

    Then was running around asking questions so didn't get one.

    Here's the Brooks Reed quote on ILB:

    (on how he feels about playing inside linebacker) “I like it, and I hope they keep me there, but it doesn’t really matter where they put me – at SAM (strongside) or middle – I’ll do both to the best of my ability.”
