Houston (CBS Houston) – The Texans have been relatively quiet on the personnel front since Bill O’Brien took over, but on Wednesday they made their first offseason roster move. In what could be a sign of things to come they signed former Jaguars tight end Zach Potter.
Potter, 27, spent four seasons with the Jaguars, but was out of the league last year. He’s got good size at 6’7 and actually played defensive end at the University of Nebraska before converting to tight end in the NFL.
Free agency doesn’t start until March 11th, but because he didn’t play last year Potter can sign before that period. Houston only has two tight ends under contract for next season (Owen Daniels and Ryan Griffin). Griffin is coming off of a productive rookie season, but Daniels could be a cap casualty.
