McClain: Okoye Not Likely to Remain in Texans Future

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle wrote this past week that DT Amobio Okoye’s future with the team is in doubt.  Recognizing Okoye’s lack of size and strength for a 3-4 nose tackle, McClain is also missing Okoye’s potential ability to play the end position in Wade Phillips’ 3-4 system.  Okoye’s set to make $2.5 million this year.

McClain wrote, “I’ll be surprised if he’s on the team. He’s a 4-3 DT who specializes in stopping the run but can’t rush the QB.”

In other Okoye news, the twenty-three-year-old from the Igbo ethnic group of Nigeria was recently commended by sports minister, Professor Adedoja Tawoheed, for his philanthropic efforts in Nigeria.
