With the Texans not reporting for their offseason workout program until April 18, Osweiler is taking the opportunity to get some extra work in with his new receivers.
The group arrived on Monday and will work together for a week.
For Osweiler it's a solid step to create chemistry and a working relationship with his new receiving corps. One under-discussed aspect of quarterback play is the importance of timing between quarterback and receiver. Getting some extra work in before the coaches get involved can only help.
The added bonus is the receivers are able to pass on intimate knowledge of Bill O'Brien's offense to Osweiler, giving the quarterback a jumpstart on preparations.
The Texans are hoping Osweiler can stop the merry-go-round of quarterbacks that has been spinning in Houston over the past three seasons. Improved play from the quarterback spot should also help aid Hopkins to an epically monster year after he carried mediocre passers last season.
