Texans Resign Bryant Johnson and a Veteran Linebacker
According to Mark Berman of Houston Fox Sports, the Houston Texans have agreed to bring back veteran wide receiver Bryant Johnson for one more go during the upcoming training camp.
Johnson was brought in last season during the last week of training camp and ended up making the 53 man roster heading into Week 1. He did appear in all 16 games for the Texans last season, mostly with special teams coverage. He did chip in late in the season receiving wise with 6 catches for 90 yards and one touchdown.
Head Coach Gary Kubiak made it known during OTAs that he wanted a veteran presence in camp to help push his young wide receivers and it looks like the Texans have got their guy. The Texans also brought in free agent wide receiver Roy Williams for a workout, which looks like he didn’t impress the staff.
Also, the Texans signed 9-year veteran inside lineback Keyaron Fox to fight for a roster spot in camp. Fox is known as a special teams ace and has appeared in 108 games during his career, starting 7 of those. It will be interesting to see exactly why Fox was signed. It may be insurance for Darryl Sharpton who is coming off a serious quad injury last season.
