"Every season the Houston Texans bring in tryout players to rookie mini-camp and this season one landed a contract after the three day workout. The Texans will be signing rookie inside linebacker Ryan Langford to a contract to keep him through the off-season. Langford is a 6-4 and 235 lbs. linebacker who played at New Mexico.At New Mexico last season, Langford appeared in 13 games and had 53 total tackles for 7.5 tackles for loss and 2 sacks. He also had one interception to go along with three pass deflections. Langford started his college career at Iowa Western before transferring to New Mexico prior to the start of the 2014 season. He showed versatility to play inside or on the edge of the New Mexico defense, which gives the Texans some options on where to work him when OTAs arrives."
