Texans Sign Griffith, Two Others, Make First Cuts

According to John McClain at the Houston Chronicle, the Texans have waived a slew of their undrafted free agents: fullback Jack Corcoran, guard Kristian Matte, linebacker Will Patterson, wide receiver London Crawford, quarterback Tyler Sheehan and tackle Adam Ulatoski were all given the red tag in their lockers today. Joining them was veteran tight end Michael Gaines, who didn't have much of a case for a roster spot as long as the Texans TE's proved they were healthy.

On the other side, three of the tryout group mentioned yesterday survived and were handed contracts: veteran fullback Justin Griffith, tight end Derrick Fine and wide receiver Bobby Williams were signed as OTAs wrapped up for the Texans. There will be no more offseason work until training camp opens up on July 31.  

Corcoran had become my pet case of the undrafted free agents that the Texans had signed post-draft, as a strong blocker that could push Vonta Leach after his poor year, but apparently the Texans wanted more of a sure thing to push him and opted for the seven-year veteran Griffith, who spent last season with the Seahawks.
