QB Tom Savage describes "only thing that matters"

Tom Savage had a fun week.

The Texans are finished with their first three organized team activities (OTA) and start week 2 on Tuesday. The fourth-year veteran said he was happy to cut loose with the first team offense and be back on the field.

"It's going great," Savage said Tuesday. "It's fun getting out there and competing against the guys. Obviously, the offense – well, it's May now, so we're just working right now, just trying to become the best team we can be."

After a pair of starts and coming off the bench in a third game last season, Savage entered OTAs as the starter under center. But the Pitt product is focued solely on one thing.

"I'm just kind of worried about my execution and what I can do to help this team win, really," Savage said. "That's the ultimate thing. That's the only thing that matters to me: the guys out here. That's it."

Savage said making plays is of the utmost importance once he's able to get into ballgames, and that his time in the offense has been a benefit.

"This has been the longest I've ever been in an offense in my career so it's been fun," Savage said. "I'm learning a lot and just going out there and – I know I sound repetitive – but just executing what these coaches are teaching me and ultimately trying to win games."

The first preseason game isn't until August 9 at Carolina. Week 1 of the regular season is September 10 at NRG Stadium versus Jacksonville. Savage and the Texans will get back to work at the Houston Methodist Training Center on Tuesday.
