The 31-year old ILB previously played for Wade Phillips in Dallas.

The Houston Texans have reportedly come to agreement on terms with former Dallas Cowboys ILB Bradie James:

James played for Texans DC Wade Phillips from 2007-2010 when Phillips was the Cowboys head coach.

A 6'2 250 LB from LSU, James was drafted by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2003 draft and spent his first nine seasons in the NFL with the team.

From 2005-2010, he started every game for Dallas and emerged as one of the team's leaders. However, at the age of 31, he's already lost a step, with the Cowboys taking him off the field in passing situations in 2011.

His production fell off the map in his first season under Rob Ryan, as he had only 44 tackles and 1 pass deflection after averaging over 100 in the previous six seasons.
