The Texans may soon have their replacement for Demeco Ryans.  

SportsRadio 610 and Chron.com’s John McClain reports the team has agreed to terms with  free agent linebacker Bradie James.  

The nine year veteran has started 111 games and made 747 tackles since the Cowboys drafted him in 2003 out of LSU.  He spent four of his nine seasons as an on-field leader in Wade Phillips 3-4 defensive scheme inDallas. 

The 31 year old veteran is expected to compete with third year linebacker Darryl Sharpton for playing time at the weakside inside linebacker position.  

Sharpton took over for Ryans in 2010, when the Texans defensive captain suffered a ruptured achilles.  

After Ryans’ return in 2011, Sharpton spent most of his time on special teams until suffering a torn quadriceps muscle that ended his season in October.
