Finally, actual football has returned.
After what seems like half a year (wait a minute, it was) of speculating about the Texans 2014 season, the team's training camp began this past weekend. The Bill O'Brien era is starting in earnest here in Houston.
After two days of practice, a few plays have stood out as the squad continues to compete with preseason games on the horizon. Below are a collection of the top three GIFs from the opening weekend of action.
Vote For Fitz
Our first GIF, or graphic interchange format, is of newly named starting Texans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick completes a pass...sort of.
I'll Take That
Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph, who is returning from a foot injury, snatches this pass during drills. I promise this acrobatic INT has nothing to do with the first GIF. Scouts honor.
Two Different Rookie Receivers, Two Great Catches
When passes were completed during this weekend's practices, there were spectacular catches made. Rookie Travis Labhart (Texas A&M) and Lacoltan Bester (Oklahoma) made a pair of highlight reel grabs you can see below.
