The Houston Texans are taking a look at free agent safety Jaiquawn Jarrett.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported on Monday that former Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams will be working out for the Houston Texans on Thursday.
It looks like Williams isn’t the only safety the Texans are taking a look at.
Patrick Starr of State of the Texans reported on Tuesday that free agent safety Jaiquawn Jarrett is working out for the Texans.
"Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett is here on a tryout with the Texans for mandatory mini-camp. Played for the Eagles and Jets."
The 27 year-old Jarrett was a second round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2011 out of Temple University.

Jarrett played for the Eagles from 2011-2012 and then with the New York Jets from 2013-2015.
Jarrett was out of the NFL in 2016 after being waived in October of 2015 by the Jets due to an injury.
For his career, Jarrett has a total of 83 tackles, 1.5 sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.
With the Texans taking a look at Jarrett and Williams, it’s obvious they’re not comfortable with their current safety situation.
Losing safety Quintin Demps in free agency might be a bigger deal than we first thought.
