It's been a long three years for Houston Texans fans to say the least, but with DeMeco Ryans set to lead the team, we examine three big factors to focus on this season.
First, the Texans are ready to compete this year with a boatload of draft picks and plenty of salary cap available. No more worrying about landing the top pick in the draft.
The other two factors involve signing Laremy Tunsil to an extension, and deciding what to do with disgruntled wide receiver, Brandin Cooks.

Per The Athletic's Chandler Rome, Framber Valdez plans on both he and the catcher calling pitches this year. He said he “wants to feel more comfortable,” adding “not that I don't feel comfortable with the catchers, but I want to feel comfortable and throw the pitches with more conviction…to feel like I have the game in my hands.”
