Houston (CBS Houston) – The Texans and Eagles continue to swap players, this time for much needed depth to each squad, Monday afternoon. Houston traded wide receiver Jeff Maehl for offensive lineman Nate Menkin.

Menkin, 24 year old, was claimed off waivers by the Eagles from the Texans last season due to the Texans’ final roster cutdown. Menkin never played a game for the Eagles because he ended up on injured reserve with a throat cartilage tear.

The Texans are looking for much needed depth on the offensive line with Wade Smith and Brennan Williams currently out due to injuries.

Menkin, who is from Mary Hardin-Baylor, can play both guard or tackle.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly knows wide receiver Maehl from Oregon, who played four years in college for the Ducks. He made the Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2010 and spent most of the last two seasons on the Texans practice squad. He played three games for the Texans in 2011, but didn’t record a catch.

Maehl joins a wide receiving corps that has been hit hard by injuries, most noted Jeremy Maclin and Arrelious Benn.
