Brock Osweiler wasn't the first person to get a Brock Osweiler Texans jersey.
His father, John, holds that distinction.
"My dad got the first Osweiler jersey," the Texans quarterback said Thursday on Texans Radio. "As soon as he heard the news, he went straight to the stadium shop and got the jersey printed up. But the best part is, they wouldn't give it to him until I signed my contract."
The elder Osweiler's Wednesday trip to the Go Texan Store in NRG Stadium didn't yield a #17 jersey until a day later. But he was on the property for an interesting reason: he was at work.
"The whole thing to me is like a movie," Osweiler said. "It's wild. My parents work for the RCS Carnival. My dad is in charge of security and my mom is in charge of guest relations. So they travel with this carnival for nine months out of the year and it just so happens to be in the NRG Stadium parking lot right now."
The Osweilers have been in town for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo's carnival, and they had a unique vantage point of their son's professional move. On Thursday they didn't have to travel far to attend the introductory press conference inside the stadium.
"It was easy for them to pop over and share this special day, which made it extra special," Osweiler said of his parents' attendance at the press conference.
Osweiler grew up in Kalispell, Montana and played collegiately at Arizona State University.
