The Houston Texans worked out a bunch of players on Tuesday as they look for potential reinforcements.

I just mentioned earlier today that the Houston Texans were working out former No. 3 overall draft pick, defensive end Tyson Jackson.

The Texans also claimed cornerback Marcus Williams off of waivers from the New York Jets and released cornerback Johnthan Banks.

It’s a shame Banks didn’t work out after just signing with the Texans a couple of weeks ago.

The Texans were busy on Tuesday after working out a total of 11 players.

The players Houston worked out were cornerback Marcus Sayles, quarterback Connor Shaw, wide receiver Paul Turner, offensive tackle Wilie Beavers, wide receiver River Cracraft, linebacker Jarone Elliott, linebacker Lamarr Houston, defensive lineman Kendall Langford, offensive tackle Steven Moore and defensive back J.R. Nelson, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Tuesdays are the day of the week where NFL teams typically bring in a bunch of players for workouts. Some times one or two guys will get signed, but most are brought in to see how they look in case they need to add a player in the near future.

The Texans also released offensive lineman Jah Reid, who was signed earlier this season. It will be interesting to see how they fill his roster spot.

Reid never appeared in any games this season for the Texans despite all of the reshuffling that they’ve done along their offensive line.

Feel free to comment below and give us your thoughts on the roster moves and workouts that the Texans conducted on Tuesday.
