Megan Manfull and John McClain, of the Houston Chronicle, report Houston Texans OT Victor Riley continues to get more work at left tackle in practice.

"Victor's such a large man that when he gets on his man, he just engulfs him," head coach Dom Capers said about the 6-5, 335-pound Riley. "Victor just covers them up, and once he does that, the defensive players have a hard time getting off of him."

Texans | Two to Compete at Left Tackle

Thu, 28 Jul 2005 16:50:12 -0700

HoustonTexans.com reports Houston Texans head coach Dom Capers said OTs Seth Wand and Victor Riley will be competing for the starting job at left tackle during training camp. "For me to stand here and tell you who our starting left tackle will be, I could not tell you but its hard many times to evaluate your line without pads on. We were not able to have one-on-one pass rushing drills and those types of things in the spring. I thought we made a lot of strides in our footwork and I think our line really understands what we are doing in the scheme now, and I thought it has looked the best it looked during the spring. It is a whole different element when you get out, put the pads on, and you are rushing the passer. We cannot give you a specific time when we say this is our starting line up, but we will have a plan working towards that," said Capers.

Sun, 22 May 2005 08:44:55 -0700

Carter Toole, of HoustonTexans.com, reports Houston Texans head coach Dom Capers explained that recently signed OL Victor Riley could eventually compete at left tackle with OT Seth Wand this year, but he is currently practicing at guard and will need to improve his conditioning to land a starting job. "We'll have to wait and see," Capers said. "He's a big guy. He has played right tackle. We're working him some at guard right now. It probably just depends on how fast he picks up the system and what kind of condition he gets in. We really won't know until we get into training camp."

The Advocate reports the New Orleans Saints starting offensive line is projecting this way: LT Kyle Turley, LG Wally Williams, C Jerry Fontenot, RT Victor Riley and RG LeCharles Bentley. OT Spencer Folau can play guard but is working exclusively at right tackle and he will probably start the first game when Riley serves his one-game suspension. Bentley, who played two years at center and one each at guard and tackle at Ohio State, has been impressive during the team's first four practices and appears to be the favorite over OL Tutan Reyes to start at right guard.

Chiefs | Tried To Keep Riley

Fri, 05 Apr 2002 08:32:05 -0800

The Kansas City Star reports the Kansas City Chiefs tried hard to hang on to OT Victor Riley before he signed with the Saints Thursday, but they could not give him the one thing he wanted - a one-year contract. As noted earlier, Riley's contract with the Saints is for two years but can be voided if Riley achieves some easily reachable playing-time incentives. The Chiefs final offer on the two-year contract was worth more in 2002 than Riley can make with the Saints, according to Riley's agent, Pat Dye Jr. Riley was disappointed with the offers he was getting on the open market so his strategy then became to get as much money as he could on a one-year deal and to try the free agent market again next year.
