Watch: Vince Wilfork lobs pass to J.J. Watt during practice

We knew the Houston Texans were going to have a quarterback competition this summer with Ryan Mallett, Brian Hoyer and Tom Savage, but apparently nose tackle Vince Wilfork will be in the mix, too.

Not really, but maybe Wilfork will get to run the scout team on special occasions. Check him out here connecting on a roughly 20-yard pass to goal line tight end J.J. Watt.

It may be that Wilfork’s jersey provides such a large white canvas, but that ball looks like a peanut in his hand.  

Also, consider this an appetizer for this season’s "Hard Knocks" that will feature the Houston Texans: Wilfork and Watt are shaping up to be best buds:
