Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill about to play fast under Lovie Smith with the Texans

HOUSTON — Kamu Grugier-Hill will be on his sixth year in the NFL and his first year with Houston Texans this 2021 season, and the fast linebacker and special-teamer is confident about what the Houston Texans coordinator, Lovie Smith, has got in store for the Texans for 2021.

He had four seasons prior in Philadelphia and won a Super Bowl ring in 2017 and a 2020 campaign with Miami Dolphins. Kamu Grugier-Hill thinks that the Texans' defense will be fast this season.

"I just love the way Lovie runs his defense," Grugier-Hill said. "The guy's a legend. He really allows you to just be a player and play fast. For the first time in my career, I really feel like I can be used to my full capability."

Kamu Grugier-Hill, a Honolulu native, has played collegiately at Eastern Illinois, and in 2016 he was a sixth-rounder for the Patriots. After that year's training camp, he was a free agent for just a few days before he was picked up off the waiver wire by the Eagles.

The former Philadelphia special-teamer thinks that his speed will be a great fit with Lovie Smith's defense.

"I think I fit perfectly into it," Grugier-Hill said. "He likes speed guys. I can run and play the pass and do all that kind of stuff. I'm very excited for the future."

Kamu Grugier-Hill and the Texans just finished their second week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) at the Houston Methodist Training Center and will continue the OTAs next week.
