With Deshaun Watson watching from the sidelines while he waits to be traded, put on the exempt list, suspended, or whatever the analysts are suggesting will happen this week, the replacements the Texans signed to take over for the embattled quarterback opened training camp with their own set of struggles.
Sean Pendergrast, a sports radio host in the area, was on hand for the Texans practice on Saturday and the reviews are in.
After reporting that Davis Mills, the former Stanford standout the Texans selected in the third round of April’s draft, was having the worst practice he had ever seen from a Texans quarterbacks, Pendergrast said that no, it in fact was Jeff Driskel that was having an even worse practice.
Both quarterbacks reportedly missed tons of throws and threw far to many interceptions, though no specifics were provided.
“We really love what he’s all about, we love all the intangibles he has,” Texans head coach David Culley said of Mills. “He can make all the throws and we feel good and feel fortunate that we’re able to get him when we got him.”
After spending the 2020 season with Denver, the Texans brought in Driskell on a one-year, $2.5M deal. Last year he made three appearances, completing 54.7% of his passes for 432 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
