The Houston Texans will sign Antonio Allen , the Houston Chronicle reports.
Allen, who spent last season on IR with a torn Achilles, is now in line to provide the Texans with added depth at safety, plus he can serve as a contributor on special teams. In his last NFL regular season action, Allen notched 41 tackles in 15 games (including eight starts) for the Jets in 2014.
The team has also announced the activation of defensive lineman
He could return and be placed on injured reserve if he clears waivers.
Allen was a seventh-round pick in 2012 who performed well enough to earn significant playing time, particularly over the past two seasons. A brief stint at cornerback failed, leading to his return to the safety position.
Allen dropped to the ground in pain during a non-contact drill. He tried to get up, but could not and was helped off the field by trainers.
Todd Bowles later confirmed the injury, but its severity has yet to be revealed. A torn Achilles would sideline him for the year.
Allen has played in all but one game over the last two seasons and has contributed to 78 tackles during that time.
