New Texans WR Braxton Miller Learning on the Job Quickly

Braxton Miller

Braxton Miller impressed the Texans enough during the Senior Bowl all-star game and a private workout that they drafted him in the third round, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Although Miller caught just 26 passes for 341 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 281 yards and a touchdown on 42 carries in his lone season at receiver and earned All-Big Ten Conference honorable-mention honors, he flashed the kind of explosiveness to convince the Texans to draft him even after already picking Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller in the first round.

Now, the Texans are finding Miller to be a determined, quick study as he learns on the job as a rookie.

“Yeah, I think the thing with him is he works at it he wants to pick things up,” Texans wide receivers coach Sean Ryan said. “He wants to be good. I think he’s got a little chip on his shoulder understanding that there were some people out there that thought there would be this large learning curve for him and weren’t sure about him being a receiver.

“I think that helps to fuel him and he’s a competitive guy. He wants to learn and he’s smart enough to learn and those are the two biggest factors to me.”

“Braxton Miller, just a versatile player, explosive player,” Texans general manager Rick Smith said. “Trying to impact our football team, adding players who can add dimensions to our football team who can make plays with the ball in their hands, and certainly he can do that.”

Although Miller had to sit out the entire 2014 season as a redshirt due to a shoulder injury that required surgery, he reinvented himself as an all-purpose threat as a senior.

“Just being an athlete all my life,” Miller said of the relatively seamless shift. “I like having the ball in my hands and making people miss.”

“If I’m back there returning and I’m going back on o

ffense, that’s a cheat code. That’s a way to get the ball in a playmaker’s hands. I’m available no matter what they want me to do.”

Texans Limited Partner Philip Burguieres Passes Away

Texans limited partner Philip Burguieres, a former vice chairman of the franchise who played a key role in helping owner Bob McNair bring the NFL back to Houston, died Thursday night, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Burguieres, a Louisiana native, served as McNair’s right-hand man with the Texans and other business ventures for decades.

“It is with great sadness that I report Philip passed away last night,” McNair said in a statement. “Philip worked tirelessly with me to bring an NFL franchise back to Houston.”

“He was instrumental to the success of the Texans, serving as vice chairman until 2012. Philip also was involved in the McNair Group investment activities. He was a long-time friend of mine, a mentor to many and will be greatly missed.”

Newly minted Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler acknowledged how tough a choice it was for him to leave the Denver Broncos, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Osweiler played four years with the Broncos, apprenticing under Peyton Manning for the past two seasons, developing into a starter before being benched and replaced by Manning on the way to the team winning a Super Bowl championship.

Osweiler said he followed advice from his agents, including Jimmy Sexton, of CAA, to not talk to the Broncos for a while Before a decision was reached, Osweiler said he did hold conversations with the Broncos as well as the Texans to determine which direction he was headed.
