Houston Chronicle beat writer, Jordan Godwin, published a column today on the off-season transformation undertaken by Brice McCain this past spring. McCain added weight to his frame without sacrificing his best asset: speed. He has also improved on the mental aspect of his game and now looks as confident as ever in coverage. McCain is currently slated to be the nickelback for the Texans when the season commences in September. He is still fighting for a starting spot.
