One unlikely player could be the linchpin of the Texans defense

The Houston Texans are getting ready for a big season, and the defense could certainly use a big boost from Whitney Mercilus returning to his old self.

Mercilus struggled last year coming back from a pectoral injury, so maybe after another year of recovery he can have a big year.

ESPN 97.5's Joel Blank talks about how Whitney Mercilus could be the key for the Texans defense this year. Point Blank is presented by Fitz Roofing.
