Bryan Braman LB HOU 10 Months
Texans OLB Bryan Braman has been running with the starters at OTAs.
Braman is one of the top special teams players in the league, but he has played just 81 snaps on defense in his two seasons. "Here's an opportunity to say, 'Bryan, can you start? Can you be a starter in this league?' So we're going to give him a chance throughout OTAs to see how far he can come," coach Gary Kubiak said. Braman's getting a chance because Brooks Reed has been taking reps at inside linebacker.

Undrafted rookie OLB Bryan Braman is making it hard for the Texans to keep him off the 53-man roster.
Braman picked up 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble against the Jets last Monday night after standing out in camp. He had character concerns coming out of West Texas A&M, but the Texans believe that may have been just immaturity. At 6'6", 230 pounds with a 4.48 forty, Braman isn't your typical undrafted free agent.
