Texans to practice with Falcons, Broncos


Some teams like joint training-camp practices against other teams.  Others don’t.

The Texans under coach Bill O’Brien apparently do.  A lot.

The Texans have announced that they’ll conduct joint training-camp practices with two different franchises — the Falcons and the Broncos.

Atlanta and Houston will work out together on August 13 and 14 before playing a preseason game on August 16.  The next week, the Texans will travel to Colorado several days before a preseason game against the Broncos for three total practice on August 19 through August 21.

The Texans haven’t held joint training-camp practices since 2010, with the Saints.  Previously, the Texans and Broncos practiced jointly from 2003 through 2005.  In 2002, Houston’s first season in the league, joint training-camp practices occurred with the Cowboys.

  1. This joint story is awfully smoky and hazy.

    If it helps a team, then why let the top team in the AFC get this help? Find somebody else or do a double session with the Falcons. Well maybe Bill O’Brien just likes making friends with Elway and his people, so I guess I didn’t think about the political motivations he may have.

  2. They quit practicing with the Saints when Jeremy Shockey kicked DeMeco Ryan’s butt when he tried to be tough LMAO!

  3. Prepare to be filmed… Seriously though, why would AFC practice with AFC? Seems foolish to me, unless they want to tape each other
