RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Derek Newton.

2014

Newton will be Houston's starter at right tackle.

2013

Newton, who was the primary starter at right tackle during the 2012 season, enters this year coming off knee surgery. He has an inside edge to return as the starting right tackle, but the health of his knee and competition from rookie Brennan Williams will determine that.

2012

Newton will be the team's back-up right tackle this season.

2011

The Texans return all of their starters and prime backups from 2010, so Newton will have a hard time nailing down a roster spot. Perhaps he sticks as a practice squad player.
