Texans Sign S Quintin Demps, IR DE Jesse Nading

The Texans signed safety Quintin Demps, who had been working with the UFL's Hartford Colonials, and placed defensive end Jesse Nading on IR, according to Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com. Scurfield also noted that the club brought back DT Malcolm Sheppard to the active roster from the practice squad.

Demps, 25, had played for the Eagles the last two seasons. He bumps the number of safeties on the Texans roster from 3 to 4. He'd lost his job in 2009 to Macho Harris. All of those things make him every bit the reclamation project that every other Texans safety in franchise history has been.
