The Houston Texans are undergoing a regime change in 2014 with the arrival of new head coach Bill O’Brien. After having the top overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the team selected Jadeveon Clowney to play opposite J.J. Watt, creating probably the best defensive end tandem in the league.
Soon it will be time for Clowney and the rest of the Texans to get to work as the offseason workout programs will begin, and here’s a look at the Texans’ upcoming spring and summer schedule.
