John McClain is reporting the Texans have come to terms with free agent defensive ends Adewale Ogunleye and Ryan Denney, and have waived Tim Jamison to make the roster changes work.
Ogunleye is ancient for a lineman at 33, but had good burst in recording 6 1/2 sacks for the Bears last season before going down with a fractured fibula. Denney, also 33, came off the Bills bench last year and also has chops as a pass-rusher, notching 23.5 sacks mostly off the bench for the Bills. He also was born in Denver, so that gave him an edge with the Colorado-centric front office.
The moves were made with the hope of replacing the injured Connor Barwin, who hit IR with his dislocated ankle. The Texans waived Tim Jamison, one of the last ends to make the roster, to make space for both Denney and Ogunleye. Jamison will have his chance to test the waters of free agency, but could make the practice squad over someone like wide receiver Derrick Townsel, who was given the last spot long after the roster cut deadlines passed.
