The Ultimate Texans blog by the Houston Chronicle wrote on Sunday the Houston Texans have claimed former Tennessee TItans offensive tackle Joe Adams off the free agent waiver list.

The article by Brian T. Smith says of Adams:

"“The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Adams was an undrafted rookie out of Columbia. He spent time with Miami and Tennessee the last two seasons.”"

Since the Texans are claiming Adams off waivers, he’s automatically on the Texans’ 53-man roster, which means there will be a player dropped off that roster later today.

This is a smart move by the Texans because they really need some depth on the offensive line, because last season the tackle position wasn’t the greatest for the Texans, who were an NFL-worst 2-14 one year ago.

The report of Adams beige claimed by the Texans was first reported by’s Ian Rapoport via twitter.

There are sure to be more moves made by the Texans today as they will be adding to their practice squad on Sunday as well, plus maybe picking more players off the waiver wire.
