Bill O’Brien is back. He hasn’t been heard from, really at all, since the Texans’ 2018 season ended at the hooves of the Colts. Now O’Brien is speaking again. Not about the past. He’s discussing the 2019 version of the Houston Texans.
You can watch his entire press conference here at HoustonTexans.com. I’d embed it, but they are cowards and won’t let me. If you don’t want to listen, you can get a spark notes version of it from Deepi Sidnu, also via the Texans website.
If you don’t want to do either, well, here’s what you are missing. O’Brien wants to have Tyrann Mathieu back, has nothing but praise for Jadeveon Clowney, believes Tim Kelly is very smart, was mum on who will be the primary play caller for 2019 (despite hiring Kelly as offensive coordinator a few weeks ago), clarified that Will Fuller is in fact doing well and is thankful for all the get well cards we wrote him, and...yeah, that’s about it.
Watch it. Read it. The NFL Scouting Combine begins tomorrow with the special teamers, offensive linemen, and running backs participating in drills.
