Offensive Tackle Will Yeatman Visits the Texans

According to the National Football Post, the Houston Texans had free agent offensive lineman Will Yeatman in for a visit.  Yeatman went undrafted out of Maryland in 2011 and shortly was signed as a tight end by the New England Patriots for training camp. Yeatman never made it out of preseason and was waived by the Patriots.  Later that season, he was claimed off waivers by the Miami Dolphins and placed on their active roster where he appeared in 3 games, starting in 2.  In 2012, Yeatman was switched from tight end to offensive tackle for the Dolphins.  In the three seasons with the Dolphins, he appeared in 15 games. In November of 2013, Yeatman tore his ACL after Head Coach Joe Philbin said he could be the potential starting left tackle for the Dolphins.  After the 2013 season, Yeatman became a restricted free agent but the Dolphins choose to not tender him making him an unrestricted free agent.  The Texans are currently in the market for an offensive tackle after the unfortunate news of David Quessenberry being diagnosed with lymphoma.
