  • Texans 2017 Off-season Workout Programs (OTAs, Mandatory Minicamp)

    First Day: April 17

    OTA Offseason Workouts: May 22-23, May 25, May 30-31, June 1, June 5-6, June 8-9

    Mandatory Minicamp: June 13-15



    Voluntary offseason workout programs are intended to provide training, teaching and physical conditioning for players. The calendar for 2017 is below.

    As per Article 21 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each club’s official, voluntary nine-week offseason program is conducted in three phases:

    Phase One consists of the first two weeks of the program with activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.

    Phase Two consists of the next three weeks of the program. On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills as well as team practice conducted on a “separates” basis. No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted.

    Phase Three consists of the next four weeks of the program. Teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or “OTAs”. No live contact is permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.

    Article 22 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement stipulates that clubs may hold one mandatory minicamp for veteran players. This minicamp, noted below, must occur during Phase Three of the offseason program.

    New head coaches are entitled to conduct an additional voluntary veteran minicamp. Any voluntary minicamp for veteran players must be conducted prior to the NFL Draft (April 27-29), but no earlier than week three of the club’s offseason workout program and after at least one week of the two weeks of Phase One activities that the clubs may hold pursuant to Article 21. This year, five clubs will hold voluntary veteran minicamps.

    Each club may hold a rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, which in 2017 may begin on May 15. During this period, no activities may be held on weekends, with the exception of one post-NFL Draft rookie minicamp, which may be conducted on either the first or second weekend following the draft. The dates of each club’s post-draft rookie minicamps will be circulated at a later date.

      OTAs tomorrow, and we're hosting some QB prospects at the same time. Building will be buzzing, some show and tell.

        I hope so.

        Can we assume that OB has narrowed it down to 2 QB's?

        Watson and Mahomes?

          First we have to wonder who's making the decision on QB if it's in the first. If Rick is planning on firing Billy, or Billy is going to move on to another job, would you want your soon to be ex-coach choosing the next coach's QB? Does that make sense? But... will Rick ever take responsibility for putting his name on a high pick QB? Has been unwilling to do so in the past.

          To your question, I don't think so. They've done work on all of the QBs during draft process, as have most other teams. It's been less talked about in the media is all. Teams like the QBs much more than media types.

          Right now I think McClain's guess makes most sense -- if top 3 QBs are gone Texans look to OT.

          Problem is, I think top 3 QBs are gonzo and can see top 3 OTs gone as well unless we trade up a bit. But 3 QBs and 3 OTs will be pushing some very good defensive prospects down to us, so we may not be able to pass one up.

          Notable shift this year from Ricks extensively planned and executed rumor -- true and false -- leaks plan. Texans trying much harder to keep things buttoned up. Interesting shift. Will see what drops from now to draft.

          This is the time when teams have pretty much finished setting their draft boards, and now the phone lines will be burning up across the nation discussing potential draft trades. Always a huge volume of action on each first rounder -- like half the league or more on every single pick. It's wild and sometimes haphazard. Gets moreso on the clock, too.

            John McClain‏ @McClain_on_NFL
            Hopkins is praising the heck out of Savage. They've worked together a lot on and off the field.

            Hopkins "As long as we win, I don't care whose name is on the back of his jersey."

            Hopkins on what he likes about Savage "I'll tell you what I don't like. When I went to his house last week, he didn't have any Blue Moon."

            Hopkins on Savage "He knows this system better than anybody. He throws a good ball. We've developed chemistry."

            Savage said it's going 2b a "fun and peaceful (QB room)." He didn't mention specifics, but we know O'Brien and Osweiler had a lot of blowups.

            Savage "It's going to be a fun and peaceful (QB) room." Interesting.

            Savage "We're going to play fast and have some fun. The one thing I can say to Texans fans is dont doubt the guys in the locker room."

            Savage on OBrien "I love the guy. He's hard on you, and that's what I want. I want to be coached."

            Savage "Hopefully, this is the last time we talk about injuries. I've gone over each one. I could have avoided (a couple) with experience."

            Savage "Communication (with receivers) is going to be key. We've got to have fun and be on the same page."

            Savage "I'm not really worried about the naysayer. They can draft whoever they want. I play for the people who believe in me."

            Savage on last year of his contract "I don't think about the money. It's a heck of an opportunity, but I've only started two games."

            We have interviews with Savage, Watt, Hopkins and OL David Quessenberry, who finished chemo treatment last week. 3 tough years.
            Aaron Wilson‏ @AaronWilson_NFL

            David Quessenberry on wanting to throw a block again: 'I can't wait. It's going to be feel beautiful.'

            David Quessenberry: 'This is organization has had my back since Day One. That's something that's rare to find. That's very special.'

            David Quessenberry: 'I'm definitely not the same person, probably physically and mentally. I came out stronger.'

            David Quessenberry: 'My family, my faith, my belief there's a bigger picture here, there's more to the story.'

            David Quessenberry: 'We're in uncharted territory. I feel great.'

            David Quessenberry: 'It feels amazing. We're not talking about the next treatment. We're talking about the next phase.'

            David Quessenberry; 'It was a long fight. I was pretty excited to ring that bell.'

              I agree with your entire post, but this portion has been on my mind for awhile now. Does it make since to put stock in a QB that will probably have to learn a new system before the end of his rookie contract?

              My conclusion is "Yes", but only if O'Brien believes in the QB. I think they traits he looks for translate to most systems.. From what I've read his list of desirable traits looks something like this: 1) High Football IQ 2) Accurate 3) Leadership 4) Throwing Power. In addition to those traits being transferrable, I think O'Brien is pretty decent at finding kids that actually have those two intangible traits, and weeding out the ones that pretend to.

                It was both, Mahomes was the 17th and Watson is listed later this week. I pray that Smith doesn't fall in love with Watson. I love his leadership and grit, but after watching film I have a very bad feeling about him. He has been compared to Vince Young with less accuracy and arm strength in multiple scouting reports. Plus watching Williams bail him out of about 5-6 INTs last year alone...scares me. And he leaves a lot to be desired reading a D.

                  My conclusion is "Yes", but only if O'Brien believes in the QB. I think they traits he looks for translate to most systems.. From what I've read his list of desirable traits looks something like this: 1) High Football IQ 2) Accurate 3) Leadership 4) Throwing Power. In addition to those traits being transferrable, I think O'Brien is pretty decent at finding kids that actually have those two intangible traits, and weeding out the ones that pretend to.
                  I agree with him also. I don't think Smith would mind getting rid of OB. He wants Lovie Smith and is not an OB fan at all. Plus he has had "issues" working with OB, tends to happen when you don't get what the HC needs. I don't think McNair will let OB go based on 3 9-7 years with no real QB. He is probably safe until his last year on his contract. Then he will walk away unless McNair gives him more control over personal.

                    McNair really needs to hurry up and get rid of Smith so that these assumption can come to an end. Every darn gone thread ends up with all this negative talk about Rick Smith.

                    H2O4me thanks for the update nonetheless. Football season is right around the corner. Savage is excited but humble, i like that. Now he has the opportunity to show his worth.

                    Quessenberry is truly a blessing and inspiration. I pray that he be very successful out there on the gridiron. Talk a wonderfully story that would be.

                    Savage does know how to get the ball to Hopkins. Im looking forward to seeing that connections.

                    My Rockets and Astros are looking good but im so pumped and ready for some Texans football.

I love his leadership and grit, but after watching film I have a very bad feeling about him. He has been compared to Vince Young with less accuracy and arm strength in multiple scouting reports. Plus watching Williams bail him out of about 5-6 INTs last year alone...scares me. And he leaves a lot to be desired reading a D.
                      I think it'd be McNair falling in love with Watson if anything. Remember McNair is a South Carolina guy hence his infinity with those players, and who is their big in state rival? Clemson, look how OB gushed over Chris Polk after his one game against us, I can only imagine McNair is the same after watching Watson whip up on SC for a few years

                        To be fair though.. the last couple years, everyone has opened a can on SC.

                          It would be both, just like the other QB we signed/traded. (Not to compare Watson to Osweiler.)
                          I don't think there's a love affair going on between the front office and Bill O'Brien, good chance of a mutual separation after 2017. -- Lance Zierlein and Jayson Braddock

                            Assumptions?

                            Read this, not that it took any time to get 2 articles on it. Like I said 2-3 articles probably false, a few hundred and by trusted sources close to the team and others, it's common sense that the smoke means that fire is there.

                            Smith, who oversees all personnel decisions, had one year left on his second contract with the Texans, so his extension will take him through the 2020 draft.

                            And this is why some misunderstand how much power and lack of power Smith and OB has.

                              Dude ive read these article when they first came out. You're posting a few articles not 100. So let's not over do it like that.
                              I know how the chain of command works.

                              We've been bagging our heads around here about who's doing what. I remember when most of you guys were saying Rick is just a puppet. Now all of a sudden he has all this power.

                              Again bump it, time to move on. That horse is freaking dead already. Let's get ready for some OTA's, and all that other good stuff.
