2014 Houston Texans OTAs, Day II: Updates, News And Open Thread

Mike Vrabel, imparting wisdom to Jadeveon Clowney. - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

It's day two of OTAs for the Houston Texans. Stick around for updates and news on Battle Red Blog as it arrives throughout the day.

Yesterday was the first day the new rookies and established members of the Houston Texans roster practiced together under the Bill O'Brien regime. Jadeveon Clowney started working with J.J. Watt and Mike Vrabel, the competition began for the QB1 spot, and undrafted free agents began fighting for potential roster spots. Oh, and Andre Johnson is a man of his word and missed the first day of OTAs like he said he would.

Today will be much like yesterday. We will update this page with tweets, videos, interviews, and news as it comes in through the mail room. Additionally, treat this as you would any open thread and post whatever morsels of truths you can stumble upon as you traverse the internet.

We presume that Savage misspoke. He saw plenty of Houston when he was parachuted in off the cargo plane.

Loose lips sink ships...and franchises.
