It is usually not the norm when a free agent comes in and takes command of a defense. Not normally, but when you’ve already sweat hundreds of hours under the sun for new Defensive Coordinator Romero Crennel, the transition to a new team can have less disruptive impact.
Enter free agents nose tackle Jerrell Powe and free safety Kendrick Lewis, both coming over from the Kansas City Chiefs. Crennel was the defensive coordinator between 2005 – 2010 and the Head Coach from 2010 until the end of last season.
“I kind of help the guys on small details on what Romeo expects and how to play the defense,” Powe said in an interview on Texans Radio. “A couple of guys asked me about certain techniques and I help them out, let them know what Romeo expects, how he likes things done and the do’s and the don’ts just to keep him happy. When he walks into the meeting and he’s happy with us, he’s pretty pleased with practice.”
