Texans | Whitney Mercilus becoming more versatile

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 20:59:10 -0700

Houston Texans LB Whitney Mercilus has been working on dropping back in coverage this offseason, and he said he is excited about his role in defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel's scheme. "More drops into coverage instead of solely rushing, rushing, rushing," Mercilus said. "So now, (I am) understanding concepts and formations of the offense and being able to drop back into coverage, understanding what are my keys, what am I reading for, and reacting between pass and run, especially when I do have to drop back into coverage."

Texans | Defense to consist of moving parts

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. "You have to be flexible and be able to adapt to what your players can do, and you have to be able to adapt to what your opponent's doing," Crennel said. "It changes all the time." DE J.J. 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. LB Brooks Reed can play inside and outside and LB Whitney Mercilus can switch sides.
