We're about six weeks away from the start of training camp, and eight weeks away from the preseason opener at New England.
-DeMeco Ryans and the Texans are finished with what they thought was a productive offseason program, and he outlined the major goals for his players during this break.

This one is an awesome diving touchdown grab of his at Chicago.
-I'll finish with this bit of gold: Special Teams Coordinator Frank Ross is also a skilled hair cutter. Check out what he did recently...
