Battle Red Newswire: I Really Did Catch #GrindFlu


Who's next on the carousel of mysterious offseason surgeries? Also, a law firm that employs a man named David Carr is representing Mario Williams' ex-fiancée in the diamond ring suit. And I literally caught the #GrindFlu yesterday.

Battle Red Newswire: Playtime Is Over


Rookie camp is done with, but dat #GrindFlu is spreading.

The Tebow Petition: We The People Want Him In JAX


President Obama promised us change we could believe in. Houston Texans fans should all hope that includes changing his mind on the decision to kill the Tebow petition on the White House website. We get to play the Jaguars twice a year, remember?

Battle Red Newswire: D.J., Please Don't Hurt Me


Ed Reed already having hip surgery, eh? Awesome. At least we drafted a safety that looks like he may actually kill someone on the field of play in 2013. Also, my dad got to throw out the first pitch at an Astros game on Friday. It didn't go well.

Battle Red Newswire: Clutch City Resurrection?


The Texans offensive line is doing it big this weekend. Deion Sanders, Jr. sleeps on gilded sheets. Americans are unmoved by the R-word controversy. And prepare yourselves: a #ClutchCityResurrection is at hand.

Battle Red Newswire: Hail To The Redtails


Bad news for Texans fans: Derek Newton will be out until training camp at the earliest. Good news for Redskins fans: Laurence Fishburne may soon be the team's new ambassador. Plus, a shout out to the man left hanging by my boy Chandler Parsons.

Battle Red Newswire: Nice, Jon Snow


A solid haul from the draft + a big accomplishment for Jon Snow = a great weekend in my books. The only question now is when, not if, Skecher's comes calling for Nate Montana.

2013 NFL Draft: Minter Is Coming


When it seems like all the draft experts' forecasts are wildly incongruous, sometimes you just have to take the Korena Route. Base your prediction off of completely irrelevant criterion, and sometimes you surprise yourself with how logical you sound.

Battle Red Newswire: Only Two More Days


Only two, more, days. Check out mock draft speculation, Texans news, and assorted NFL tidbits in today's BRN.

Battle Red Newswire: George H.W. Bush Is A Baller


Chicks dig the power of a former POTUS, the money of Clay Matthews, the newfound flexibility of Tim Tebow, the cell phone technology of Andrew Luck, and Jackie Robinson, of course, because he's in that new movie.

Battle Red Newswire: The Buc-ees Conspiracy


Though football definitely seems less important on a day like today, it is people like former Patriots guard Joe Andruzzi that bring any sort of positivity to the kind of situation that occurred in Boston on Monday.

Battle Red Newswire: Sucks To Be Riddell


And a whole lot more. Even Brett Favre anecdotes!

Battle Red Newswire: Come At The King


All Texans fans need to learn some lessons in etiquette. But so does Rolando McClain, and he is still drawing interest from a team that won't surprise you.

Battle Red Newswire: The Madness is Over


OT Ryan Harris re-signed with the Houston Texans on Monday, but the news was overshadowed by one of the best NCAA Tournament finals in recent memory.

J.J. Watt Wasn't At Full Strength In 2012


Shudder and weep, NFL. J.J. Watt can and will be better in 2013.

Battle Red Newswire: Head Injuries and White Lies


Is Ben Jones living the life? I would say so, yes. The same could not have been said for Dante Stallworth during his ill-fated hot air balloon ride that he opens up for in today's Newswire. Don't even get me started on the Pat White situation.

Battle Red Newswire: The Curse Of Kevin Walter?


That, comparisons to Astros past, Colt McCoy's moving on up, career advice from an older brother to a younger sister, and much more.

Battle Red Newswire: Greg Who? Greg Jones


The news from the day centers around the very buff Greg Jones.

Battle Red Newswire: Life Outside of Football


And it's all going down in Mexico City tonight.

Texans Sign P Shane Lechler


The Houston Texans added another All-Pro talent on Friday with the signing of punter Shane Lechler, former Texas A&M Aggie.

Battle Red Newswire: Reed Signs, Lechler Visits


#BattleReedWatch (that's what it should have been called the whole time) is over, so are our questions about who is going to play safety in 2013. Shiloh Keo will not come for at least another two years.

Battle Red News Wire: #ReedWatch Continues


Continued reports out of Baltimore indicate that the Texans remain a front runner - if not the front runner - in the Ed Reed Sweepstakes. We've been down this road before.

Battle Red News Wire: Death of #BarwinHouseParty


A wrap up of Houston Texans related news from yesterday. I wonder if anything happened?

Battle Red News Wire: Free Agency Begins


A link-filled guide to the aftermath of Day 1 of free agency, what may come next, the hashtag needed for promoting the Barwin House Party, and some really weird eyelid action by the Ninja.

Quin, Trades, & What It Could Mean For 2013


Free agency begins this afternoon. That could mean a sad goodbye to players like Glover Quin, which may hurt more after the NFC West decided to get all handsy.
