Houston Texans 2012: Latest News, Roster Cuts, Preseason Predictions
Houston Texans Methodist Training Center

Since the free agent era began in the mid-90’s, the NFL has become the league of the one-year turnaround. Last season, the Houston Texans were a beneficiary of this trend. 

Unrestricted free agent Johnathan Joseph came over from the Cincinnati Bengals and joined newly appointed Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips. And both helped transform the Houston defense from one of the worst in 2010 to one of the best in 2011. 

But this trend can go both ways. In the offseason, salary cap considerations led to the release of RT Eric Winston and the departures of RG Mike Brisiel and TE Joel Dreesen. The failure of No. 3 receiver Jacoby Jones to reach his potential and hold onto the ball in the Baltimore playoff loss led to his exit from the team. 

Now that training camp has arrived, an abundance of unanswered questions hover over the proceedings. What takes place over the six weeks of practices, meetings, and preseason games will determine how the defending AFC South champs respond. 

This will include coaching decisions, roster moves, injuries, and developments both on the field and off. Here at Bleacher Report, we will keep you updated on everything affecting the Texans’ preparations for the upcoming campaign.
