2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Brian Peters

A closer look at the Houston Texans roster heading into the 2016 training camp.


If there were only a few players who directly helped infuse life and turn around a Texans season on the brink in 2015, Brian Peters definitely fits that billing. Peters arrived in Houston after being claimed off the practice squad of the Minnesota Vikings, earning his money making plays on special teams and leading the team in tackles in that aspect of the game. Peters can help at both outside and inside linebacker in a pinch but he is easily the special teams leader, as shown in last season’s performance. 


Working some at inside linebacker, Peters will be depended on to make a difference on special teams once again. He provided enough big plays in coverage to change games, most notably on kickoff coverage against the Cincinnati Bengals. It is clear he that brings a different type of play and mindset which the team needs on and off the field. Peters is a guy who goes 100 mph.
