The Houston Texans made some roster moves as we get closer to training camp.

The Texans announced on Tuesday that they’ve signed veteran offensive tackle Breno Giacomini, rookies Bryce Jones (cornerback), Dare Ogunbowale (running back), and Chris Thompson (wide receiver).

In order to make room for all four players the Texans released offensive tackle Dimitric Camiel, running back Kenny Hilliard, wide receiver Tevin Jones and safety T.J. Mutcherson.

The 31 year-old Giacomini has spent time with the Green Bay Packers (2008-10), Seattle Seahawks (2010-13) and the New York Jets (2014-16). He was a fifth round pick of the Packers back in 2008.

It’s funny that the Texans have now finally announced that they’ve signed Ogunbowale.

I just wrote yesterday that the Texans  hadn’t signed Ogunbowale even though it was reported right after this year’s NFL draft that the former Wisconsin running back was signing with Houston. I guess things were delayed for some reason.

Ogunbowale is a versatile running back that could help the Texans on special teams.

Thompson is a wide receiver out of the University of Florida that only caught nine passes over the course of his college career.  He didn’t have one single reception during his final season in 2016 for the Gators.
