Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler doesn’t want coach Bill O’Brien to go easy on him as off-season workouts begin, he said after his first practice with the team.

“Sometimes [O’Brien is] going to get on you, which he should,” Osweiler said via NFL.com. “I had a couple turnovers today. I’m going to chalk those up as learning experiences. I’m going to make sure they don’t happen again, but I want him to be on me. I don’t want that to be acceptable.”

Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Texans this off-season after seeing success with the Denver Broncos in 2015.
