Matt Schaub’s teammates are convinced he’s the quarterback to lead them to the Super Bowl, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Dealing with the Houston heat during camp is part of the Texans’ plan, says McClain.
For the first time in Texans history, the first-round pick isn’t expected to start, says McClain. That’s a great commentary on their depth. Whitney Mercilus will still see the field, and he loves Wade Phillips’ system.

Antoine Caldwell vs. Brandon Brooks for right guard ranks as a big training camp battle to Chris Burke of SI.com.
Clint Session regrets keeping a concussion a secret, and now he’s paying a big price for it, says Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union. A major cautionary tale coaches around the league should be sharing with their players.
Writes Gene Frenette of the T-U: “[T]he early read on Blaine Gabbert from those who study him most intently is this: there won’t be a lot of similarity in the 2012 version from the one who had an NFL-low quarterback rating of 65.4 as a rookie.
The Maurice Jones-Drew holdout is tough, because there really isn’t room to compromise, says Stellino. Actually, I believe there is. Don’t give him a new contract, just give him the money he’s due in the next two years more quickly.
Because of their offseason work ethic, Paul Posluszny, Dawan Landry, Brad Meester and Greg Jones got special reserved parking spots, writes Tania Ganguli of the T-U.
The defense is already about 90 percent installed according to coordinator Mel Tucker, says John Oehser of jaguars.com.
