“He didn’t do (badly),” defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel said of Houston’s two-tackle game against Buffalo. “All rookies make mistakes. I don’t care how good they play. They all make mistakes. He still has a lot to learn but we’re encouraged by what we see, and we think he brings something to the table that will help our team.”
HALEY: “He’s a player that a bunch of us here have had some familiarity with. A bunch of us were in New York (Jets) when he was drafted but when he came out here it was very clear he was very excited to have made the team, number one, and then during the time here, even though it was a short time, picked things up very fast. He hadn’t played in a little while so he was working hard while he was here. We got word multiple times that he was working real hard once he left, so that was kind of an indicator that it still meant a lot to him and he’s excited to be back here and be part of the team. I think there’s a good chance to be out there playing.”
“I’m excited about Brandon,” Haley said. “He’s a guy that was here when we got here; it took a little adjustment period, but he has been nothing but on board with the way we’re doing things. He’s a tough, competitive guy that has been one of the consistent players for us throughout this two-year period.“He’s a core player on this team, and I’m excited to see him play his best year yet. I think that Brandon believes that he can be a great corner and he’s done nothing to show me that he’s not going to continue to improve.
