Texans coach Bill O’Brien has run his own offensive system since he was offensive coordinator in New England, head coach at Penn State and at the start of his tenure in Houston. But that was before he had Deshaun Watson.
O’Brien said this morning on PFT Live that now that he has Watson as his franchise quarterback, he is making significant changes to his offense to make sure it takes advantage of Watson’s unique skills, as well as the skills of star receiver DeAndre Hopkins and other talented players on Houston’s roster.
Last year Watson spent training camp and the preseason as a backup and didn’t start until Week Two. This year, with an offense built around him and a full offseason of work, Watson could be even better. As long as he’s healthy.

Still, a holdout can’t be ruled out. Mack’s agent, Joel Segal, kept running back Chris Johnson out of camp in 2011 in order to get the player paid, and Segal possibly will do it again with Mack, who has watched the Raiders give quarterback Adrian Kempe Jersey Derek Carr a contract worth $25 million per year after only three seasons. Mack now has played four full years, he has earned his next deal, and it’s now time for Mack to get paid.
Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the team and player have been negotiating, but that the early stages of negotiation revealed a significant gap between the two sides.
Milton appeared in 14 games last season.
