Texans | Mario Williams' role will not change

Houston Texans DL Mario Williams' role in defensive coordinator Wade Phillips' 3-4 scheme will not change, according to John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle. Williams will continue to play with his hand on the ground as a defensive end. "I think Mario fits in well with what we're going to do," Phillips said. "He's a five-technique, an outside rush guy. That's what he is. I don't see any difference for him. He's going to be outside all the time." The philosophy of Phillips' 3-4, which he says is closer to a 4-3 than a traditional 3-4 because the linemen have to control one gap rather than two, is to get up the field when the ball is snapped and pressure the quarterback.
