Texans Add Linebacker Jeff Tarpinian

The Houston Texans will be signing linebacker Jeff Tarpinian to the active roster to help the linebackers. He can play inside or outside, if needed, on defense. Tarpinian is in his second season out of Iowa and is 6-3 and 240 lbs. He was an UDFA picked up by the New England Patriots in 2011 where he played in 10 games and had 8 total tackles on special teams.

Tarpinian spent time on the Carolina Panthers practice squad in 2013 and he will be the fifth player added to the Texans during the bye week. Tarpinian was released by the Panthers on Oct. 21 to make room on their practice squad, which allowed the Texans to work him out.

Expect Tarpinian to help on special teams on game days and provide depth for the linebackers.
