As is the case with baseball, you don’t often get to control where your life will take you. In our case, baseball brought us to Houston and the Astros two years ago and we will forever be grateful for our time there. We were welcomed from day one and made to feel a part of the community - like it was where we were meant to live and grow. And, man, did we grow. To be a part of an incredible team, those record-breaking moments, and two inspiring playoff runs with some of the most supportive fans in baseball… all of these moments have left a mark that will forever remain in our hearts. Our time in Houston was chock-full of wins both on and off the field. We made friends that now feel like family. We experienced the support of unwavering fans that always held hope until the bottom of the 9th (or, in some cases, extra innings). We discovered the wonder of Tex-Mex and fell in love with the city’s summer storms. Remembering what it was like to watch G flourish there, with so much encouragement from those around him (both from inside the organization and surrounding it) will always make my heart swell. We will always remember Houston as a happy home, and we’re so grateful to the city, it’s team, and it’s people for making us one of their own. I know that every time I step foot back in H-Town, it’ll bring a big smile to my face, remembering two of the best years of our lives. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything. 🧡

What's the plan for Tytus Howard this season? Photo by Mike Carlson/Getty Images.

Houston Texans OTA's are in full swing, and we can't remember there being this much optimism about the team in years. Which has a lot of national media outlets creating more content about the Texans than ever before.

But one thing to watch out for from these national content creators is how plugged in they really are to the team. When the Texans drafted tackle Blake Fisher in the second round, many believed that was a sign that he would be the starter at right tackle, and Tytus Howard would be moved back to guard.

But anyone that has actually watched Howard play, knows that he's a much better tackle than he is a guard. And it's not even close. The Texans have talked about getting their best five linemen on the field, so we're not ruling out Howard moving back to guard at some point.

At the end of the day, Howard has struggled to stay healthy and Laremy Tunsil missed some games last year too. It's more likely the Texans added Fisher as depth at the position for this season, and he could be Howard's replacement at right tackle in 2025.

Plus, the Texans spent the No. 15 overall on left guard Kenyon Green in 2023. They would love for him to live up to his potential and be their starting guard moving forward. At this point, Howard looks like Plan B or C at left guard should the team need him to play there again in a pinch.

Be sure to watch the video above as ESPN Houston's Paul Gallant and Joe George discuss how they see the Texans offensive line taking shape this season.
