Bill O'Brien Cancels Last Day Of 2015 Houston Texans Minicamp

New, comments

The Houston Texans have decided to forego their final day of mandatory minicamp. What, if anything, does this mean as the team tries to determine who'll be starting at various positions, including but not limited to quarterback?

Wonder if Ryan Mallett is bummed that he won't have an extra day of work to show the coaching staff what he can do.

And there was surely much rejoicing in the Houston Texans locker room. John McClain has the story:

The players get an early vacation. They report back the last week of July and have their first day of training camp Aug. 1.

The Texans had perfect attendance during their OTAs. The only difference in minicamp is that it’s mandatory. O’Brien and his assistants were satisfied with the work the Texans put in, and decided the last day wasn’t necessary.

With OTAs and minicamp in the rearview mirror, I suppose the million dollar question is whether Bill O'Brien will in fact name a starting quarterback before training camp begins. Do you think it'll happen?  If so, who will it be--Brian Hoyer or Ryan Mallett?
