Defensive lineman Jonathan Greenard is on the move. He is transitioning from outside linebacker to defensive end as the Houston Texans move on from a 3-4 to defensive coordinator Lovie Smith's 4-3 Tampa 2 scheme. "I have less coverage responsibilities in this scheme and it just lets you be more of a defensive lineman and go make plays from the other side of the ball," said Greenard.
Once upon a time, Nick Caserio was a quarterback. And this week, once again, the new Houston Texans general manager is … A quarterback. No, the Texans - desperate as they may have seemed when making offseason transactions in an effort to recover from their 4-12 record last season.
A strong running game — the kind the Texans had in 2018 and 2019 when they were eighth and ninth is rushing — will benefit new starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor and the passing game. Offensive coordinator Tim Kelly calls the plays. It’s no secret what one of his priorities will be this season.
