The Houston Texans have made another move in free agency this offseason by signing defensive tackle Jerrell Powe on Tuesday.

The Houston Chronicle’s Ultimate Texans blog reported:

“The 6-foot-2, 330-pound lineman was selected in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL draft out of Ole Miss.”

Powell played his entire career with the Kansas City Chiefs, and last season only had two tackles and one sack in two regular season games this past season. He was cut by the Chiefs before the start of the season, and then was re-signed by the Texans in December.

For his two seasons of game action in the NFL, he has totaled eight tackles and one sack.

When he was at Ole Miss, Powe totaled 68 combined tackles and 5.5 sacks.

I can’t say I know a lot about Powe because I don’t, but what I do know is the Texans needed to get bodies on their defensive line and signing a 330-pound player should fill up some space if nothing else.

It looks like Powe could be a role player with the Texans, but noting more. At least we know the Texans front office still has a heartbeat as they actually did make a small move today.
