Houston Texans: Five safety free agent options
A look at five potential players the Houston Texans could explore signing as free agents in the offseason
The Houston Texans struck gold with their find at free safety in Andre Hal, the seventh round draft pick in 2014 out of Vanderbilt.
During his rookie campaign, Hal was fairly quiet as a cornerback, but after bulking up and moving to safety things were different. After starting 11 games, Hal recorded 36 tackles, 10 pass deflections and had four interceptions. He also returned one of those four picks for a defensive touchdown.

Unfortunately they weren’t as successful with any other safeties as free agent acquisition Rahim Moore was a non-factor and Quintin Demps was their primary starter at strong safety all season despite not even being on the roster for most of training camp.
Now the Texans are needing to make improvements to the roster to make the next step, and while Hal looks to be a lock at one spot, the team could benefit from searching for an upgrade opposite the converted corner.
Here are five players poised to hit the open market that could provide some help to the team.
