Former Green Bay Packers safety Kentrell Brice takes a free agent visit with the Houston Texans.
Houston Texans general manager Brian Gaine continues to bring players in ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft to fill out the backend part of the roster and build the 90 man roster for training camp and the preseason.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, safety Kentrell Brice is expected to take a visit with the Texans after the Green Bay Packers decided not to offer him a contract and let him test the market as an unrestricted free agent.
After visiting the Texans, Brice is expected to continue his free agency tour with the Indianapolis Colts and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brice came into the league undrafted in 2016 after playing his collegiate with the University of Louisiana Tech. He signed as an undrafted free agent with the Packers and spent the next three seasons with the team.
Brice has played in 36 NFL games and started in 14, he has 91 combined tackles, six pass deflections, one forced fumble, and one sack in his three seasons with the Packers. He played 14 games and started in ten games in the 2018 NFL regular season, he finished the season with a career-high 50 combined tackles, two pass deflections, and a sack.
Brice could be an option as a backup safety and a special teams contributor for the Texans. The Texans currently have Tashaun Gipson, Justin Reid, Andre Hal, A.J. Hendy, and A.J. Moore as the safeties under contract for the 2019 season.
