Brooks agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with the Texans on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 29-year-old appeared in 14 games for the Patriots in 2020 and received two starts, but he primarily had a rotational defensive role while also working on special teams. Brooks is likely to fill a similar role for the Texans.
Brooks has an early lead to win New England's starting strong safety gig, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.
Brooks has been the last man standing at strong safety as of late, with Adrian Phillips having missed several days of practice and rookie second-round pick Kyle Dugger having been limited. The sixth-year veteran has only started one game in his career, but he is coming off a career-best 2019 campaign with New England, and the starting spot is wide open in the wake of Patrick Chung opting out for 2020.
Brooks (groin) is officially active for Saturday's game against the Titans.

Brooks (groin) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against Miami.
Brooks was a late addition to the injury report Friday after practicing in a limited fashion and, as evidenced by this news, couldn't shake the groin issue. With Brooks sidelined, Duron Harmon and Nate Ebner appear in line to see a slight uptick in snaps.
Brooks signed a two-year contract with the Patriots on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Brooks played a key role on special teams with the Jets during the last two seasons, and is likely to see similar usage in New England. The 27-year-old will also provide depth at the safety position.
The Jets declined to pick up the option on Brooks' contract, allowing to become a free agent at the beginning of the 2019 league year, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Selected by Baltimore in the third round of the 2014 draft, Brooks never lived up to expectations on defense but did emerge as a key special teamer the past two seasons in New York. He should land on his feet in a similar role, potentially even rejoining the Jets at a lower price.
Brooks agreed Wednesday with the Jets on a two-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Brooks arrived in the Big Apple last August via trade from Philadelphia, finishing his first season with the Jets with 13 tackles in 15 games. With a new two-year deal in place, Brooks will likely reprise his role as a depth cornerback and special-teams contributor during the upcoming campaign.
Brooks (hamstring) practiced without limitations Wednesday and is in line to play Sunday against Tampa Bay, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Brooks (hamstring) has been ruled inactive for Thursday's game against the Bills.
The news is not all that surprising, considering Brooks was doubtful heading into Thursday's contest after not practicing the entire week. As a result, look for Rontez Miles to possibly see expanded snaps at safety behind starters Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye.

Brooks recorded two interceptions and collected two tackles in Sunday's 20-6 victory over the Dolphins.
Brooks had been quiet the first two games of the regular season, but opposing quarterback Jay Cutler's wayward accuracy allowed the defensive back to make his presence felt in Week 3. It's worth keeping in mind that Brooks saw only 31 defensive snaps in the contest, so a workload of that level won't lend itself to much IDP utility if he's not regularly causing turnovers.
Brooks was traded to the Jets on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Jets parted ways with Dexter McDougle with the hopes that Brooks can add value as a depth safety. The 25-year-old will likely fill in behind the rookie tandem of Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye.
Brooks (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
This will be the second straight game Brooks will miss with the hamstring injury he suffered during the team's Week 9 loss to the Giants. His next opportunity to return will be a Monday night tilt against the Packers in Week 12.

Ravens reserve free safety Terrence Brooks has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

Free safety Terrence Brooks continues to rapidly recover from a serious knee injury and may be able to start the season for the Ravens without going on the PUP list, per The Baltimore Sun.
Brooks tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee last December, but has been participating in full-team drills during OTAs and has shown no ill effects from the injury. Brooks may start training camp on the reserve list, but he's hoping to be active by September.
"I definitely don't feel like I'm rushing. It's not like I'm hurting myself while I'm doing it. I'm pushing myself. It really feels good," he said.
Brooks had 19 tackles, 11 passes defended and a fumble recovery after being drafted in the third round last year.
Ravens free safety Terrence Brooks is running after suffering ACL and MCL tears in his right knee in December, the Baltimore Sun reports.
"Terrence Brooks is doing really well," coach Jim Harbaugh said. "No predictions right now, but he looks good. He has worked hard."
Brooks is expected to open the season on the PUP list and could make his return this season.
"We're just hoping for the best, trying to get back as soon as possible," Brooks said. "We're taking precautious. We definitely don't want to rush back too fast. If you do get cleared, playing this year is definitely a goal. You don't want to rush it. For the most part, you have to be cautious and take it easy. After we get off of the PUP list, we'll see where we're at. I definitely want to get back into it, but we're taking our time. I have high hopes of being ready."
The Ravens will not disregard Terrence Brooks when planning how their free safety position shakes out this season. He is optimistic about returning to action at some point.
Brooks tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee last December against Jacksonville. He has declared that he has made steady progress since his surgery and has not ruled out playing in 2015. He will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and will avoid rushing back before he's ready, but he believes he's in good shape at this point.
"Its going really good," he told the Baltimore Sun. "To be honest, we're probably a little bit ahead of schedule. I haven't had a break since I've been hurt. It's been straight rehab since (surgery)."
The third-round pick in 2014 contributed 19 tackles, two passes defensed and a fumble recovery in 11 games (no starts) before going down.
