Wed, 28 May 2014 09:45:55 -0700

Houston Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel plans to be flexible with his defense and move guys around to create different looks for the opponent this year in his 3-4 defense.

Watt could line up in a three-point stance or he might stand up. LB Jadeveon Clowney can stand in the base defense and drop in passing situations.
