Texans’ second-year WR Chris Thompson said he “found my niche” as a kickoff return specialist.
“I found my niche,” Thompson said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “I just want to be the best at it.”
Texans WRs coach John Perry added that Thompson “adds a dimension of speed” to the team’s offense, but would like to see him improve his strength.
“Chris adds a dimension of speed,” said Perry. “He can just take off at a moment’s notice. You’d like to see him continue to get better with strength and things like that. He’s been doing everything we’ve been asking him to do.”

- Although Jim Wyatt of TitansOnline.com says that LT Jack Conklin is “making progress” from his ACL tear, Titans HC Mike Vrabel said Conklin will not be ready for the start of training camp and could be placed on the PUP list.
- Wyatt is unsure whether the Titans will keep four running backs or four tight ends on the 53-man roster given the team is expected to carry three quarterbacks including Marcus Mariota, Blaine Gabbert, and rookie Luke Falk.
- As for Titans’ second-year WR Corey Davis being limited in minicamp due to a lingering hamstring injury, Wyatt mentions that Davis “should be ready to go” for the start of training camp.
