Outside Linebackers: Jamie Sharper, Brian Cushing
Even though Sharper only played three years for the Texans, he is still fourth in franchise history in tackles with 296. He also forced six fumbles and racked up 11.5 sacks. Cushing has been a devastating hitter during his time with the Texans, but staying healthy has always been his weak spot. Still, he is second in franchise history with 371 tackles.
Inside Linebacker: DeMeco Ryans
Before leaving for Philadelphia, Ryans was a tackling machine. In six years with the Texans he racked up 471 tackles, most in franchise history. He also forced six fumbles and had 26 passes defended. He was an all around player, who unfortunately could not stay healthy a lot of the time.
