Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans...
LSU coach Les Miles likes to go with the hot hand, er, legs. So when running back Alfred Blue lost his starting spot because of injury to Jeremy Hill, he didn't get it back. But Les Miles, speaking at a Touchdown Club luncheon in Houston yesterday, said Blue might have been the best running back in the SEC before he got hurt, writes Drew Dougherty of HoustonTexans.com. The Texans drafted Blue in the sixth round with the 181st pick.
Rich Gannon said on SiriusXM Andre Johnson is doing a disservice to the Texans, writes Bobby Bonett. Gannon says the Texans have treated Johnson well and says this will hurt the transition to the new head coach. "One of your veteran leaders, one of the captains of your football team, decides he’s not going to participate in the offseason program," Gannon said. "The idea that he would be traded is simply not gonna happen. If they were to trade Andre Johnson, they’d have about $12 million in dead money. And not only that, but he’s one of the best players on the football team."
Houston is interested in hosting the NFL draft, writes Don Banks of SI.com. The NFL is considering moving it from New York City. Does this mean it'll move back to April? If so, sign me up! Of course the incredible ratings the draft had this year probably aren't helping my cause to cut out the extra two weeks that were added.
Texans left tackle Duane Brown was revealed as the 86th player on NFL Network's top 100, writes Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com. It's Brown's third straight year on the list. During the show Terrell Suggs said Brown is more athletic than he looks.
