Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans...
Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com recounts the thoughts of tight end Owen Daniels and cornerback Johnathan Joseph regarding whether or not they'd restructure their deals if asked. Speaking at Andre Johnson's charity event benefiting the Houston Area Women's Center, both players said that while the Texans hadn't asked, they'd be willing to help the team. Worth noting here: Joseph restructured his deal before the 2012 season to help the Texans' give Matt Schaub a contract extension.
Both players also talked about their rehab, writes Drew Dougherty of HoustonTexans.com. Joseph's is "going great" after January surgery to repair a torn toe ligament. He isn't sure when he'll be back to work, but said it will be in time for football. Daniels, whose injury came 10 weeks prior to Joseph's said his leg feels like the break in it never happened.
Case Keenum is upbeat, writes Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle. Keenum suffered a thumb injury late in the season and his hand healed without needing any surgery.
The Chronicle's John McClain offers quick-hit thoughts on each of the Texans restricted and unrestricted free agents.
And now, onto the real start of free agency.
