Texans | Whitney Mercilus becoming more versatile (Mon Jul 14, 11:59 PM) - Houston Texans LB Whitney Mercilus has been working on dropping back in coverage this offseason, and he said he is excited about his role in defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel's scheme. 'More drops into coverage instead of solely rushing, rushing, rushing,' Mercilus said. 'So now, (I am) understanding concepts and formations of the offense and being able to drop back into coverage, understanding what are my keys, what am I reading for, and reacting between pass and run, especially when I do have to drop back into coverage.'

Our View: The Texans are going to have a suffocating defense in 2014. Too bad their offense won't be up to snuff.
