Mini-Camp in Full Swing
Alright Texans, spring break is over and summer school has started. Time to get out of the pool and put your football pads back on. Ed
Reem Reed is in camp, talking about his hip. Tim Dobbins found time in his busy schedule to make it to camp.
We're Talkin' About Practice?!
Outside of Mr. Dobbins, the majority of the healthy Texans showed up to organized team activates. In Coach Kubiak's eyes, OTAs were enough reps for the starters to get back into the rhythm of the game. The mini-camps will hopefully be a place where the younger Texans can shine.
"They've had 10 good practices under their belt," Kubiak said, per John Brannen of the Houston Chronicle. "They don't need three more days of the same reps. These young guys need them. As a coach, it's my job to get them in a position to make a team."
"NFL 32 in 32" Profiles the Texans.
NFL.com's Dan Hanzus lays out the biggest questions and storylines surrounding the Texans. If you've been following BRB at all, you know what they are. But it's always nice to the NFL giving the Texans some attention.
If you hadn't seen it already....
DeAndre Hopkins gave BRB a shoutout in a sit down with SBNation's Dan Rubenstein.
Around the League
One more bullet for the Colts
The Colts have added another running back to their stable, Ahmad Bradshaw. Bradshaw is coming off an injury-filled season in New York that saw him be replaced by David Wilson. Bradshaw won't be able to carry the full load for Indy, but he is a better option then Vick Ballard and Donald Brown when healthy.
LA LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU! LA LA LA LA
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo spoke to the media on Tuesday after the team's mini-camp. Romo was clear in his feelings about the media.
"Not trying to be rude, but you guys just don't matter," Romo told reporters on Tuesday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
To better translate this comment, ‘I got paid! It doesn't matter what you think anymore. Thanks, Jerry.'
Injury Bug Bites Hard
Outside of Michael Crabtree, the majority of NFL ‘stars' have been able to keep a clean sheet thus far when it comes to injuries. Victor Butler, one of the keys to the Saints' defensive plans this season, has now torn an ACL. New Orleans hoped Butler would have a breakout year in 2013, but he will be sidelined for the entire season.
NFL Draft is Live from New York City, San Francisco, and Dallas. What?
The NFL is testing the water about the idea of splitting the NFL Draft into separate cities for each draft day. A separate city would host each draft day. Sounds unnecessary. BRB, what do you think?
While we are here.....
USA! USA! USA!
Last night, between the NBA Finals and the Astros playing across the way at Safeco Field, the United States Men's National Team took on Panama in World Cup qualifying. The boy in red, white, and blue completely outclassed the Panamanians. Centurylink Field was rocking with "We are going to Brazil" and "USA ain't nothin' to ‘f with". It was the first time I've seen a fluid American offense in all the time I've been watching USA soccer (since 2005). Get on the bandwagon now before it's too late.
