The Texans have signed safety Antonio Baker, running back Chris Ogbonnaya, offensive tackle Cole Pemberton, center Cody Wallace and wide receiver Paul Williams to reserve/future contracts.
Each player finished the season on the Texans’ practice squad. Baker and Pemberton were rookies, Ogbonnaya in his second NFL season and Wallace and Williams in their third respective seasons.
Because of the way the contracts work, these are additionally one-year practice squad extensions for the five players. Pemberton and Ogbonnaya stayed on the squad all year, while the other three were signed in-season as the Texans original practice squadders were called up to the 53-man roster.
