When the Texans stretch at practice, the music blares.
The playlist is predominantly hip-hop. Names like Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, and Ayo & Teo have all gotten some air-time over the first few days at training camp in West Virginia.
No matter what's playing, running back Akeem Hunt dances along in between stretches. Occasionally, cornerback Robert Nelson will do a standing backflip. The bulk of the team chats with each other. For some, it doesn't even matter what's playing.
"I'm fine with what we play," linebacker Brian Cushing said. "If the guys are all happy and hyped up then that's cool with me. Music or no music, I'll play the same. No big deal."
Others, though, sometimes object to what they hear.
"I just complain all the time," cornerback Johnathan Joseph said. "I don't have any say in it, but if it's something I feel like doesn't get the juices flowing, I'm definitely complaining over there."
So far, though, it looks like the music selections have been fine: the Texans defense has been amped up through the first three days of camp.
The team will practice again Saturday morning at The Greenbrier.
