Texans GM Rick Smith claims no dispute with Duane Brown

After the Texans checked in to The Greenbrier for their first training camp outside Houston, general manager Rick Smith addressed offensive tackle Duane Brown's decision to not report. Brown, 31, has two years left on his contract, and he didn't participate in the offseason program, including the mandatory minicamp, because of an undisclosed contract issue. With the exceptions of receiver Andre Johnson and defensive end J.J. Watt, the Texans haven't extended players with more than one year left on their contracts. Last year, receiver DeAndre Hopkins tried to get an extension with two years...

State Of The Houston Texans Franchise

State Of The Houston Texans Franchise

We’re gearing up for another season here at BRB. Let’s take a look at how we feel the franchise is doing and where we think we’ll be in a few years’ time. Like the rest of you, I’m eager for the 2017 NFL season and what it holds for the Texans. Since last season ended on an abysmal note, we’ve parted ways with Offensive Coordinator George Godsey, starting quarterback Brock Osweiler, Bengals killer T.J. Yates, and we have Duane Brown sitting out due to a desire for a new contract. J.J. Watt is back, Houston traded up and drafted quarterback of the future Deshaun Watson, and...

J.J. Watt's health, contract concerns highlight 10 Texans questions

In the aftermath of a 34-16 AFC divisional-round loss in January to the eventual Super Bowl champions, the setback has created even more determination for the defending AFC South champions. Popular with teammates for his low-key personality in the locker room and hard-nosed approach to football, Savage is a strong-armed, classic pocket passer. All indications are that he's made a sound recovery and is prepared for the rigors of the game after taking a much less aggressive approach to his rehabilitation following his second surgical procedure. If Watt's back holds up and he regains his form...

The Film Room: Khalil Mack is the NFL’s new apex predator

The Film Room: Khalil Mack is the NFL’s new apex predator

Until J.J. Watt is healthy again, of course. With the best defensive player in the NFL limited to only three games last season, there was a huge vacuum to fill. Who would step up in J.J. Watt’s place as the undisputed best pass rusher in the world? Could it even be done? Or was Watt just that far ahead of the rest of the pack? Well, as the league would soon find out, Watt’s dominance could and would be emulated by none other than the man who the Texans passed up in the 2014 NFL Draft - Raiders defensive end Khalil Mack. On this week’s episode of the Film Room, we’ll dive into...

The Texans Have the Best Front Seven in the NFL

Pro Football Focus has high hopes for Houston’s defensive line in 2017. The Houston Texans boasted the number one defense in the NFL last season, and now Pro Football Focus has ranked them the top front seven in football (as did NFL.com earlier this year). The talent on their defensive line, with Jadeveon Clowney, Whitney Mercilus, Brian Cushing, Benardrick McKinney, Christian Covington, a rising D.J. Reader and a returning J.J. Watt is unmatched in the league. In fact, many of these Texans players earned individual nods from PFF as well. With J.J. Watt back, the Texans own the top...
