Q&A with Houston Texans wide receiver Phillip Dorsett

the Houston Texans brought in wide receiver Phillip Dorsett for a visit in early December and the former first-round pick was signed soon after. Dorsett quickly developed a chemistry with rookie quarterback Davis Mills and showed his skills when given the opportunity. Dorsett was then placed on the injured list with an ankle injury and missed the final two games of the 2021 season, but looks to be bouncing back better than ever in 2022.

Q: In 2015, you were drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the first round of 2015 NFL Draft. What was it like hearing your name called on draft day, especially day one?

Dorset: “It’s one of the best days of your life. It’s something I’ve always dreamed of, and it’s come true. For me, it’s something I will always treasure.

Q: Throughout your NFL career, you’ve played with incredible quarterbacks such as Tom Brady, Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson. What did you learn from hanging out with guys like that?

Dorset: “I’m lucky to be able to say that I played with three of the greatest quarterbacks of all time in my opinion. Being around them taught me how to work mentally and physically. To be great in this game, you have to be there. dedicate your life and bring that mentality every day.”

Q: Unfortunately, most players will never have the opportunity to play in a superbowl. You had the opportunity to play back-to-back Super Bowls with the New England Patriots in 2017 and winning it all in 2018. How did you feel?

Dorset: “Playing in a Super Bowl is another dream in itself; I had the chance to play in two of them. There’s honestly no better feeling than playing in the Super Bowl. I can’t wait to tell my daughter that her dad played in two Super Bowls.

Q: Ever since you were signed by Houston in early December of the 2021 season, it was clear that you and Davis Mills established chemistry early. What was it like watching Davis Mills progress through the season?

Dorset: “I love Davis Mills, he reminds me so much of Andrew Luck. Big arm, precise, athletic and a natural leader. He has improved every week and he will continue to grow and feel more comfortable. I have can’t wait to see him play this year.

Wide receiver Phillip Dorsett will be part of a Houston Texans wide receiver room that includes Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins, John Metchie, DaeSean Hamilton, Chris Moore and Chris Conley. Dorsett’s veteran talent and experience will be key to a young Texas offense that will look very different with Pep Hamilton as offensive coordinator in 2022.
