Whether you agree or disagree with Brock Osweiler’s decision to skip a trip to the White House with his former Broncos teammates because of the all-important OTAs, the new Texans quarterback has at least made a good impression on his new bosses.

Via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, Texans offensive coordinator George Godsey has definitely been impressed by the time Osweiler has put in this offseason.

“Yeah, it’s definitely arrow up,” Godsey said. “We’ve spent a lot of time together. It’s a whole new vernacular. He knows he has to put the time in. Players see it, players respect it, coaches definitely respect it, too. . . .

“You get what you put in. If you put in a lot, you’re going to get a lot. From a coach to a player standpoint seeing that, it’s arrow up. He’s going to continue to work like that. I don’t think that’s phony at all. I think it’s true. The players see it. That’s what a leader does.”

Of course, the Texans are paying Osweiler handsomely for the leadership, giving him a four-year, $72 million deal (without the coaches even meeting him). But Osweiler has done his part so far, organizing private workouts in Arizona and spending extra time with wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in an effort to earn that money.

Whether it works remains to be seen, but he’s at least winning over his coaches with his dedication to the voluntary offseason work.

  1. I would sure hope he’d be doing his best. It isn’t every day that a team is willing to grossly overpay for a backup qb. He’s getting Brady money, when he’s actually only worthy of 1/2 of what Fitzpatrick is. It’s hilarious how the Jets are insulted by Fitz’s agents latest number (12 mill per year), for a proven veteran, winning qb: But the Texans don’t bat an eye at paying a 7 game career qb equal monies to superbowl winning, established ones….LOL!

  2. For that kind of money, Osweiler should be at the team’s facilities 16 hours a day, every day. Anyone getting paid like that needs to put in the time, perform, and earn it.

  3. Go earn that money son. I love the work ethic. If he fails it won’t be because he didn’t put the time in.

    It’s pretty comical to think of the difference in attitude displayed here vs what they had last year with Ryan Mallet (oversleeping, missing team bus, etc)

  4. Darin, You have to say it’s a better situation than you heard about with Johnny druggy. Putting in work doesn’t always pay off right away but give him time. I’ll expect nothing less than a vilification of him after only few games.

  5. That QB situation was a mess last season and they still made the playoffs. If the defense remains good and the offense improves even slightly because of Osweiler then it was a good signing.

  6. Give it a rest.
    So he missed going to the white house
    Big deal
    How he develops as a QB with the texans, IS THE STORY.
    Not some useless PR effort

  7. Brock Osweiler will help the Texans tremendously. The entire AFC South should definitely be much improved this season. lastwordonsports.com/2016/06/14/could-2016-be-the-year-of-the-afc-south/
