Tight end Kahale Warring signs rookie scale deal with the Houston Texans.
Houston Texans tight end Kahale Warring has officially signed his rookie scale contract after being drafted in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Warring was the final player that remained unsigned from the Texans draft class. Despite not having signed his contract until Wednesday afternoon, Warring was part of the Texans offseason activities and worked within the offense as he works his way from the collegiate to professional level.
Coming from San Diego State University, Warring will be competing for playing time in his rookie season after Texans general manager Brian Gaine hit the reset button at the tight end position. Warring is the third tight end drafted under Gaine after Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas were drafted in 2019.
Along with the two tight ends drafted the last season, Warring will have veteran tight end Darren Fells to push for reps once training camp and preseason rolls around. Coming out of college, Warring is relatively new to the game of football after playing other sports in high school particularly water polo.
Warring had 51 receptions, 637 receiving yards, averaging 12.5 yards per reception, and eight touchdown receptions in his time with San Diego State University. He finished his last season in college with a career-high 31 receptions, 372 receiving yards, and matched his three touchdowns receptions in a season.
A great raw athlete with upside, Warring will have the opportunity to continue to learn how to play the position at the next level and get comfortable within the Texans offense.
