Texans Agree to Terms with Will Yeatman

According to Aaron Wilson (National Football Post), the Houston Texans have agreed to a two-year deal with free agent offensive tackle Will Yeatman. Yeatman attended Maryland after previously attending Notre Dame playing football and lacrosse.

Yeatman went undrafted coming out of the 2011 NFL draft and was signed by the New England Patriots as a tight end, the position he played in college. Yeatman was released prior to the start of the 2011 season before he was signed by the Miami Dolphins who converted him to offensive tackle after gaining 35 pounds for the move. In three seasons with the Dolphins, he played 15 games and started 2 of them before tearing his ACL in 2013.

Texans Pro Personnel Director Brian Gaine was with the Dolphins last season where he has good knowledge on what the Texans are getting with Yeatmen as a player.

Yeatman comes as insurance for the swing tackle position after second year player David Quessenberry was diagnosed with lymphoma last week.
