Texans Bring Back Ephraim Salaam

According to the National Football Post, the Texans have reached a pact with nostalgic left tackle Ephraim Salaam, who led the first Texans offensive line to not give up a bagillion sacks.

Late last season, Salaam was added as a precautionary measure when offensive tackle Duane Brown was dealing with a knee injury.

Salaam, 34, had a previous two-year stint with the Texans. He was cut by the Detroit Lions last season.

The 6-foot-7, 310-pounder has also played for the Atlanta Falcons, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Denver Broncos.

No word yet on who gets bumped off the roster or why this was necessary, but if I had to guesstimate, I’d guess James Casey might be involved after his ankle injury on Matt Schaub’s interception in the first quarter.
