Houston- The trade that shook the Houston Texans organization this past week has been finalized and head coach Bill O’Brien finally had a chance to discuss the move. General manager Rick Smith released a statement through the team (Read it Here) after the transaction was placed with an important line:
“The decision to trade Brock was made because it was in the best interest of the team.”
O’Brien, who was attending a charity event for Special Olympics in Houston on Sunday, discussed the Osweiler move.
"I think Rick Smith's statement said it all," O'Brien stated at the Olympics banquet. "We wish Brock the best, you know, we're moving on to 2017.”
O’Brien continued, “We are working hard as a staff to improve. We are working hard with the scouts to get ready for the draft. We are looking forward to the start of the off-season program which is April 17th.”
It is clear the Texans continue their business-like attitude when it comes to moves like this, but O’Brien was not interested in addressing the rumor of a physical altercation that took place with Osweiler during week 17.
O’Brien, Smith, and the organization once again are aligned in moving on from the Osweiler era of Texans football.
