Laremy Tunsil has one goal for every season, and that’s to win. It was his goal in Miami and it’s still his goal in Houston. Luckily enough, he has a better chance of doing that in his new home.
“I had a goal in Miami. I came to Houston, Texas, and that’s still the same goal I have and that’s to become a leader on this football team and to help this team as much as I can.”
He’s not only stepped into the leadership role that the team needs, but also the void at left tackle. After Duane Brown was traded to Seattle by Houston in 2017, the Texans have been starved for protection for Deshaun Watson’s blindside, especially after allowing him to be sacked a league-worst 62 times.
“We don’t want Deshaun to get touched 62 times. Things happen. But 62 is a big number. We’re going to work our butt off in practice, work our butt off in the film room and do everything we can to improve that.”
The Texans are looking to get the most out of their new trade package of both Tunsil and receiver Kenny Stills after sending two first-round picks and a second-round selection to Miami for the two offensive talents. The Texans are looking to get the most out of their new additions and to better assist Watson as he also gained a new running back in Carlos Hyde from the Kansas City Chiefs after the ACL tear to starting back Lamar Miller in the preseason.
Tunsil should meet his goals in his new home and experience new success.
