Houston (CBS Houston) – With Brian Cushing returning from a major injury and Daryl Sharpton nursing a sore groin, the Texans have decided to look elsewhere for help.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Joe Mays, who spent the last three seasons with the Broncos, has signed with the Texans.

“He’s out there… he’s free… and we’ve got some things going on with our team that we think he might be interested in.” said Kubiak.

With Sharpton out, Tim Dobbins has been working as a starter and even second-year linebacker Cameron Collins has been getting first team reps.

Mays is a hard hitter with starting experience. He’s also an excellent special teams player. His best season came in 2011, when he played in all 16 games for the Broncos recording 75 tackles.

Texans fans will remember him from a hit on Matt Schaub that earned  a $50,000 fine. Schaub dispelled the notion that he would be upset if the Texans were to sign mays.

“We’re way past that. That was gone as soon as we walked of the field that day.” said Schaub. “It’s just a physical hard nosed game and he’s a physical player and it’s just part of football.”
