Houston Texans Strategy and Personnel 2009-05-15
The Texans have bolstered their defense in free agency and the draft by adding nine new players to the mix. 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.
