Forgive this foray away from your Houston Texans, but Brock Osweiler just had his first extended media session since he was traded to the Browns. I imagine much of what the Texans’ former starting quarterback had to say will be of interest to the fans of the team that shipped him off to Cleveland.
Here is the Q&A in its entirety:

#Browns QB Brock Osweiler said his expectation absolutely is to start, knows he must earn it.— Nate Ulrich (@NateUlrichABJ) May 24, 2017
Brock Osweiler asked why he thinks he's good enough to start:— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) May 24, 2017
"I think the proof is in the film for the past two years."
Wow. It’s one thing for Brock to believe he’s still a starting quarterback in the NFL. It’s another entirely to cite to his performance last year—when he posted these numbers—as proof of that. I’m all for confidence, but that borders on outright delusion.
