Texans Set to Acquire Akeem Dent Pending Physical

The Houston Texans are set to acquire inside linebacker Akeem Dent from the Atlanta Falcons after trading quarterback T.J. Yates. Dent was drafted in 2011 in the 3rd round (91st overall) out of Georgia where he was an All-SEC linebacker.

In three seasons he has appeared in 47 games starting 20 of them and he has totaled 136 total tackles (81 solo, 55 assists) with 1.5 sacks and three pass deflections.

At 6-1 and 239 lbs., Dent will be inserted to help the inside linebackers for the Texans who are looking for depth. How this will shape the linebackers moving forward will be something to watch and Dent could be pushing for an increased role with the Texans.

Dent will have to pass his physical to make the deal official.
