Quarterback Brock Osweiler has a checklist of things he wants to work on before the start of the 2016 season. The Texans will wrap up Phase Two of their offseason workout program and begin OTA practices on Monday.
"Just to start OTAs and start meetings and start talking ball and throwing and being in the weight room together, getting back into shape, it's fun, it's exciting," Osweiler said. "One of the most important things of this time period, I believe is getting to know your teammates. Getting to know who you're going into battle with and going to dinner and hanging out off the field and getting to know families and things like that."
Osweiler spent a week with his new receivers in Arizona before players reported for offseason workouts on April 18. For the 25-year-old quarterback, chemistry with his teammates will continue to grow but the to-do list gets even longer once training camp starts.
"Building timing with your receivers, continuity with your offensive line, getting your cadence down, your rhythm, how you call things at the line of scrimmage," Osweiler said Tuesday on Texans All Access. "So there's a million things that go into training camp, conditioning, getting physically prepared to play the season. It would be very hard to hone in on one thing but I think team chemistry, running plays, building continuity, chemistry, you know there's a lot that goes into training camp."
OTAs take place May 23-24, May 26, May 31, June 1-2, June 6-7, June 9-10. Mandatory minicamp will be held June 14-16.
