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.
