HOUSTON - Are you ready for some football?
Well, the Houston Texans new QB Brock Osweiler sure is, or at least wants to be....so much so that he actually skipped out of a visit to the White House with his old team-- Super Bowl 50 Champs...the Denver Broncos-- just so he could focus on his new team.
"If there was no OTA today, I would have gone to the White House," Osweiler declared at a Texans press conference. "I think it would have been a tremendous experience to meet the president, and to celebrate that championship with those players that are going today."
Osweiler's loyalty to the Texans shows "the Brock" is definitely "all-in" to make the Texans a super contender this upcoming season!
"He's been exactly what we expected," Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said of Osweiler. "He's come in here...he works extremely hard-- he's a very, very bright guy."
Another welcomed face was Texans superstar J.J. Watt, who just got the green light to hit the field again.
"It just feels really good to play football again," Watt announced. "It's been too long."
"These guys are working extremely hard," O'Brien shared. "And I've definitely seen progress."
Osweiler wasn't the only Bronco Champion who didn't make the trip to Washington D.C.
Another player with Texas-ties-- who was key to the Broncos' championship run-- cornerback Aqib Talib also skipped the White House visit after reportedly being shot in the leg at a Dallas-area strip club early Sunday morning.
Reports say Talib is expected to make a full recovery but remain hospitalized at least through Monday.
So, while the Broncos may be celebrating, the Texans will be plotting how to raise their own trophy....with the big game on our turf this season!
