  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Has strong first season in Houston

    Thomas recorded seven tackles and a quarterback hit in the 28-25 loss to Tennessee in Week 18.

    The Texans got good value from the two-year contract Thomas signed prior to the season. He played all 17 games and finished fourth on the team with 86 tackles. The 25-year-old cornerback added four passes defensed, two interceptions -- one returned for a touchdown -- and a forced fumble. He was one of several free-agent signings that panned out for Houston. Thomas, who primarily played slot corner, will return in 2022.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Finishes off Chargers

    Thomas had a 48-yard interception return for a touchdown in Sunday's 41-29 win over the Chargers.

    The Chargers and quarterback Justin Herbert were down by nine with under two minutes left and attempting to get a score-onside kick recovery-score sequence to save their flagging playoff hopes when Thomas registered the first pick-six of his career. It was the second interception of the season for Thomas, who has emerged with a significant role in the Texans' secondary.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: First career INT

    Thomas totaled four tackles (three solo) along with one interception in the 21-14 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

    Thomas recorded his first career interception, as he picked off Zach Wilson late in the first quarter, setting up a Texans touchdown. Despite the 25-year-old's good performance Sunday, he should not be rostered in any IDP leagues due to minimal playing time and production.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Chooses Texans

    Thomas agreed Wednesday with the Texans on a two-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Thomas spent the last three seasons in Cleveland but never made a true impact until injuries piled up in the team's secondary last season. The 25-year-old recorded 30 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble across 203 defensive snaps in 2020. The Texans will likely rely on Thomas mostly as a special-teams contributor during the upcoming campaign.

  • Browns' Tavierre Thomas: Will hit open market

    The Browns don't plan to tender Thomas, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Thomas was a member of the Browns for three seasons, with the final campaign his most productive. The 24-year-old recorded a career-high 30 tackles and his first forced fumble across 16 games in 2020 while serving as the No. 3 cornerback after primarily playing on special teams in his first pair of campaigns. It appears Thomas will now aim to play a similar role elsewhere in the league.

  • Browns' Tavierre Thomas: Records sack in fill-in role

    Thomas recorded four tackles and a sack in Sunday's 38-6 loss to the Ravens in Week 1.

    Thomas was elevated to the third cornerback and played 28 snaps (47 percent), as the Browns were missing Greedy Williams (shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (abdomen). Thomas could get similar usage Week 2, a short week for the Browns who play Thursday at home against Cincinnati.

  • Browns' Tavierre Thomas: Handling kick returns

    Thomas returned two kickoffs for 40 yards in Sunday's 19-16 win over Buffalo.

    Thomas, who has yet to take a snap on defense, has been a staple on special teams but not as a returner. He's now handled Cleveland's kick-return duties the last two weeks, taking over for Dontrell Hilliard, who remains the team's primary punt returner. Thomas has averaged 24.3 yards on four returns.

  • Browns' Tavierre Thomas: Active Sunday against Atlanta

    Thomas (abdomen) is active Sunday against Atlanta.

    It's the second consecutive week Thomas has been able to overcome a questionable tag and suit up, but don't look for much production from the rookie outside of his regular role on special teams.

  • Browns' Tavierre Thomas: Active Sunday

    Thomas (abdomen) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Thomas will play Sunday despite practicing in a limited fashion all week, though he only figures to see the field on special teams.

  • Browns' Tavierre Thomas: Listed as questionable

    Thomas (abdomen) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

    Thomas has been limited in practice all week due to an abdominal injury, and he appears truly questionable for Cleveland's matchup against Kansas City in Week 9. The undrafted rookie has played all of his snaps on special teams, so his absence would be unlikely to notably impact the Browns' secondary.
