Bill O'Brien's 3 main goals for OTAs

Monday was the first day of Organized Team Activities, also known as "OTAs".

Head coach Bill O'Brien detailed what he hopes the Texans accomplish over the course of the next month.

"I think the goal is that in all three phases that we have a good understanding of what we're trying to do," O'Brien said. "That we stay healthy, and that we're closer to being the team that we want to be than we were today."

The Texans worked in the late morning and early afternoon at the Houston Methodist Training Center, and

it was the first opportunity to don helmets and coach the players this offseason. They've completed five weeks of offseason work already. The first two weeks of that period was offseason conditioning work, and the last three integrated a bit of on-field work. O'Brien described what this final phase entails.

"This is phase three, which is a four-week phase where now you can go out there in helmets, no pads and do things against each other," O'Brien said. "There is no contact. So that's basically what it is and it's still much closer to a practice-like atmosphere than the first two phases."

When the Texans conclude phase three in mid-June, they'll be off until the start of training camp, which begins in late July.
