Houston Texans: Titans take away tight end
AFC South rivals Tennessee Titans signed tight end MyCole Pruitt from the Houston Texans practice squad on Tuesday.
MyCole Pruitt is not longer a member of the Houston Texans, but rather now a member of the Tennessee Titans as they signed him off the practice squad on Tuesday to held replace the injured Delanie Walker who was placed on the injured reserve list.
Pruitt originally made the initial 53-man roster for the Texans in Early September, but the team waived him to make room for the three players they claimed off waivers during roster cutdowns. After being a free agent for a few days, the Texans signed Pruitt on the10-player practice squad. Pruitt was a former fifth-round draft choice selected by Minnesota Vikings in the 2015 NFL Draft.
Pruitt spent a short stint with the Chicago Bears before being signed by the Texans last season when the injury bug struck the team and depleted them of most of their starters on both sides of the ball. As the new head coach of the Tennessee Titans, Mike Vrabel who was a defensive coordinator for the Texans last season, is adding familiar faces to the roster of Tennessee.
Pruitt is the third Texans player to be on the Titans roster since Vrabel joined the organization as their head coach. The Titans also signed former Texans guard Xavier Su’a-Filo during the offseason before waiving him in the process of trimming thier roster. Su’a-Filo has since joined the Dallas Cowboys.
According to a report from Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Titans signed former Texans guard David Quessenberry to their practice squad. Also on Tuesday, the Texans signed cornerback Breon Borders and wide receiver Malachi Dupre to the practice squad.
With MyCole Pruit being signed off the Texans practice squad it will be interesting to see how they develop players on the practice squad from here on out.
