Andrew Sendejo has been serviceable throughout his NFL career. Could his next team be the Houston Texans?

Sendejo made his name known in Minnesota for the latter part of the last decade, teaming up with Harrison Smith for a pretty good tandem. After bouncing around and spending last year with the Cleveland Browns, Sendejo finds himself a free agent once again.  Most likely let go as 2020 second-round draft pick Grant Delpit returns from injury, the Houston Texans could sure use his services.

Justin Reid isn’t giving up his free safety spot- the same position that Sendejo played in Cleveland. That forces him to strong safety, and I can see him starting over Eric Murray.  Murray is a converted cornerback into an FS.  Sendejo has made more interceptions in his career and has the edge of Murray for the experience.

This position battle may be closer than the others on this list, I feel like Sendejo can be the ballhawk he was in Minnesota once again, this time with the Texans.
