Following an low season of participant motion and authorized issues over quarterback Deshaun Watson, the Houston Texans will lastly open coaching camp dealing with extra questions than solutions. Watson’s standing for the season stays in jeopardy given the continued civil litigation in opposition to him involving allegations of sexual assault and misconduct. Incoming normal supervisor Nick Caserio didn’t have a ton of draft capital at his disposal, which makes his resolution to make use of Houston’s first choose within the 2021 NFL draft on quarterback Davis Mills much more fascinating.
Schofield factors out that one of many greatest questions for Houston is who will begin at quarterback in Week 1: Mills or former Professional Bowler Tyrod Taylor? The actual query is who would be the beginning quarterback by Week 18. Taylor has the sting on Mills, who shouldn’t be as gifted out of the field as Baker Mayfield was in 2018 and Justin Herbert was final yr. There’s a likelihood Taylor doesn’t get supplanted by a rookie quarterback after it occurred to him with the Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Chargers.
