Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans have signed veteran safety Stevie Brown.

Brown told Kim Jones of NFL Network that he agreed to terms with the Texans Wednesday.

The signing of safety Brown just furthers the reports that the Texans are looking to trade DJ Swearinger after only two seasons with the team.

Brown was drafted in seventh-round of the 2010 draft by the Raiders.  He has also played in Carolina, Indianapolis, and most recently the Giants. In 2012, Brown had eight interceptions and two forced fumbles for the Giants.  Last year he did not force any turnovers.
