On Thursday, Houston Texans close end coach Andy Bischoff said quarterback Jeff Driskel will switch to close end.
Andy Bischoff praised 28-year-old Jeff Driskel for his “rare talent” and planned to let him participate in close-end training full-time later, or he may participate in the special team. “We currently see this as a development process.” Andy Bischoff said.
The current Houston Texans quarterback lineup includes Tyrod Taylor, rookies Davis Mills and Deshaun Watson, and Jeff Driskel does not have many opportunities to play.
Jeff Driskel has started 9 games in his career (1-8 record) and has played for Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions, and Denver Broncos. He passed the ball for 2,120 yards, 13 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. When rushing as a quarterback, Jeff Driskel showed excellent athleticism: 53 rushes for 309 yards and 3 touchdowns.
