  • Texans' Darren Fells: Signs with Texans

    Fells is signing a one-year contract with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Fells was released by the Browns on March 10 after catching 11 passes for 117 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games during the 2018 campaign. He only has 68 receptions in 70 NFL appearances, but 10 of them have gone for a score and he also has a strong reputation for blocking. Fells has a nice opportunity to compete for playing time ahead of his age-33 season, as the Texans figure to have an open competition at tight end with Ryan Griffin, Jordan Thomas, Jordan Akins and Jerell Adams all in the mix for snaps.

  • Texans' Briean Boddy-Calhoun: Heading south

    Boddy-Calhoun signed a one-year contract with the Texans on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Boddy-Calhoun started 15 games for the Browns over the past two seasons and is a decent addition for a Texans team looking to beef up its secondary. With Aaron Colvin locked in at slot corner, Boddy-Calhoun should primarily compete with Johnathan Joseph and Bradley Roby for playing time on the perimeter in advance of the 2019 season.

  • Texans' DeAndre Carter: Terms of contract announced

    Carter finalized a one-year, $570,000 contract with the Texans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The fact that the contract is under $1 million -- and a one-year deal -- suggests Carter won't be assured a roster spot for 2019. After coming over from the Eagles on a waiver claim, the 25-year-old suited up in seven games for Houston, nabbing 20 of 23 targets for 195 yards. Carter was also prominent on special teams, racking up 221 kick return yards and 146 punt return yards.

  • Texans' Tashaun Gipson: Officially joins Texans

    Gipson signed a three-year, $22 million contract with Houston on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    News of Gipson's deal with Houston was announced early Tuesday and was made official the same evening. He'll figure to take over as a starting safety for the Texans after logging 54 tackles (44 solo) and seven passes defensed, including an interception, across 16 starts in 2018.

  • Texans' Kareem Jackson: Commits to join Broncos

    The Broncos have agreed to sign Jackson to a three-year contract, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    A first-round selection of the Texans in 2010, Jackson will move on from the only organization he's ever known. The defensive back has positional versatility, having played both cornerback and strong safety in his career. Considering the Broncos released their previous starting strong safety (Darian Stewart) last week, Jackson may take over that spot in the starting lineup. However, this transaction also may be insurance in the event cornerback Bradley Roby moves on as an unrestricted free agent.

  • Texans' Tyrann Mathieu: Lands in Kansas City

    The Chiefs are closing in on a deal to sign Mathieu, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

    The terms of the contract aren't known, but Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that it's in the range of three years and $42 million. Mathieu will shore up what was among the worst defenses against the pass (273.4 yards per game) in 2018, which resulted in the 24th-ranked scoring defense (26.3 points per game). After inking a prove-it deal with the Texans last offseason, he matched his career-high in tackles (89), accrued three sacks and picked off two passes across 16 games. Expect Mathieu to slot in as Kansas City's new starting free safety.

  • Texans' Brennan Scarlett: Tendered by Houston

    The Texans extended a $2.025 million tender to Scarlett on Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

    Scarlett missed the last five games of the season with an ankle injury, but still produced 18 tackles (12 solo), a forced fumble and an interception in 2018. A team could still sign him to an offer sheet, which the Texans would have the chance to match. If he stays, he likely would regain his role as a depth linebacker and contributor on special teams.

  • Texans' Brandon Dunn: Receives tender from Houston

    The Texans submitted a $2.025 million tender to Dunn on Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

    Dunn was decent for the Texans in 2018, racking up 24 tackles (13 solo) and one forced fumble in 14 games. In theory, a team could still sign him to an offer sheet but would have to give up a draft pick in return if Houston doesn't match it. If the 26-year-old stays, he likely will be the favorite to regain his role as the starting nose tackle.

  • Texans' DeAndre Carter: Returning to Houston

    Carter is re-signing an undisclosed contract with the Texans.

    When injuries pilled up in the Texans' receiving corps last season, Carter was thrust into a slot role and caught 20 of 23 targets for 195 yards in seven games. The 25-year-old also was prominent on special teams, racking up 221 kick return yards and 146 punt return yards. Carter will likely return to his depth role as a wide receiver and return man on special teams in 2019.

  • Texans' Joel Heath: Re-ups with Houston

    Heath signed a one-year contract with the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Heath made two tackles across five games with the Texans last season while playing a limited role on special teams. The 25-year-old will supply Houston's defensive line with depth in 2019.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Gets second-round tender

    Fairbairn received a second-round tender from the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The Texans won't take any chances with their starting kicker, who converted every kick he attempted inside 40 yards last season and was the NFL's scoring leader. Houston would receive a second-round pick in the unlikely event that Fairbairn receives an offer sheet the team doesn't want to match. Fairbairn appears on track to be a top fantasy option at the kicker position in 2019.

  • Texans' Angelo Blackson: Re-signs with Houston

    The Texans and Blackson agreed on a three-year, $12 million contract on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

    Blackson recorded 24 tackles, one sack and three passes defended in 16 games last season. The 6-foot-4, 320-pound defensive end is likely to play a rotational role on the Texans' defensive line again in 2019.
