Bouye has signed a one year deal with the Texans. Bouye received a restricted free agent tender, so any team could make him an offer and the Texans would've been able to match, but that didn't happen. He has played with Houston for each of his first three professional seasons, though he took a bit of a step back last year. From the 2014 to the 2015 campaign, Bouye's tackles went from 59 to 16, and his interception total went from three to two. The dip in stats is associated with a drastic drop in playing time, as his defensive snap count went from 56.6 percent in 2014 to 17.7 percent in 2015. He'll be looking to rebound in the coming year, but he's still buried on the depth chart.
Texans cornerback A.J. Bouye left Thursday night's game against Indianapolis with a quadriceps injury, the Houston Chronicle reports. Bouye, who started the game in Houston's nickel package, will be checked out in the coming days.
