Texans Training Camp: Houston Signs Bryant Johnson And Keyaron Fox

The Houston Texans made a couple of moves on Friday to help sure up a couple of positions. They signed wide receiver Bryant Johnson back to the team, hoping to give a little more depth to the wide receiver position where several players on the roster according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Coach Gary Kubiak wanted to sign a veteran receiver to compete with Lestar Jean, DeVier Posey and Keshawn Martin, none of whom has a catch in the NFL. Johnson will help provide depth behind starters Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter.

The Texans also signed linebacker Keyaron Fox to the team. Fox last year played for the Washington Redskins and has also played with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Pittsburgh Steelers, whom he won a Super Bowl with in 2008.

To clear spots on the team for the new signees, fullback Jason Ford and cornerback Desmond Marrow were both put on waivers. Two-a-day drills for the Texans will begin on Saturday.
