Houston Texans Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-08


Houston Texans Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-08
The Texans bolstered their defense in free agency and the draft by adding nine players. They will continue to see if others become available, but they have a strong nucleus to work with now as new defensive coordinator Frank Bush begins implementing his philosophy and game plan.
