Here are a few football questions, a few camp questions, and a few life questions for tight end Ryan Griffin. You can listen to the full interview HERE.
DD: What's your best football trait?
Griffin: My versatility. I have a chance to line up at a lot of different positions and I take pride in that.
DD: What's your most-improved football trait this offseason?
Griffin: My footwork. I've really been dialed in on my steps and muscle-memory and how to block a 9-technique to a 6-technique.
DD: Which teammate talks the most trash?
Griffin: I like when 'Hop (WR DeAndre Hopkins) gets going. It's not very often but when 'Hop gets going it seems like our offense is moving at a quicker pace.
DD: Who's your most underrated teammate?
Griffin: Probably (punter) Shane Lechler. This guy, day in day out works like he's a rookie, even though it's Year 19 for him. I'm really happy he's on my team.
DD: Which teammate calms you down the most?
Griffin: D-Wat (QB Deshaun Watson) for sure. He's so laser-focused you can't help but to get locked in with him.
DD: What's your perfect breakfast?
Griffin: Probably the pregame meal. I just have my omelette. A little Western. Some ham, peppers, and mushrooms, and get to work.
DD: Who's your favorite retired NFL player?
Griffin: How about Ben Coates or Drew Bledsoe? All those old Patriots. I was a big Pats fan back in the day. Ty Law. Lawyer Milloy. Willie McGinest.
DD: You grew up in New England, but did you ever like any non-Patriots players?
Griffin: I was a fan of Steve McNair. I know he was an Oiler.
DD: If you could communicate with all the animals on Earth, or speak every human language, which would you choose?
The Texans invited two families from the United Way who were affected by Hurricane Harvey to watch practice and receive autographs from players.
