Davis Mills is the quarterback marked with the tough task of leading a Houston team that is expected to struggle a lot during the 2022 season. But Mills has a little-known known skill that might help him on the football field.
Much to McAfee’s amazement, the 23-year-old QB casually brought up that he holds a black belt in Chong Kwang Do, a Korean form of martial arts that was founded in the 70s.

Mills having a mastery of a martial art form is just a testament to how multi-faceted and athletic many NFL QBs are today.
Kyler Murray was a first-round pick in the MLB Draft, Patrick Mahomes was also a star player on the diamond in Texas. Joe Burrow was a star hooper on the hardwood — averaging 20 points per game at his high school in Athens, Ohio.
I don’t know if his fighting skills will help him keep defenders off him. According to PFF, the Texans had one of the worst offensive lines in 2021, with more than 11 different linemen earning playing time. The players who took 200 or more snaps received some of the worst grades on the site.
Things can get much worse than it was last season with the Texans posting a 4-13 record in their first season without Deshaun Watson. Whether Mills is the right option or not remains to be seen but he certainly became a whole lot more interesting.
