The Texans got as much work done as possible before any long, cold, work stoppage.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports defensive tackle Shaun Cody will return on a two-year, $5.75 million contract with $1.5 million guaranteed.  The move will surprise some Texans fans because Cody didn’t exactly stand out last season.  (Although the coaching staff liked him.)

New Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips believes Cody can transition to nose tackle in the team’s new 3-4 defense.   He will share those duties with youngster Earl Mitchell.

The Texans also re-signed tight end Owen Daniels and running back Derrick Ward on Thursday.

  1. Wow, Earl Mitchell as the NT? That could be pretty special in Wade’s D that has the NTs slanting and one-gapping.

    I remember an unknown NT from Auburn that didn’t do much in college other than workout well at the combine weighing 294 and running 4.85 at the combine… Jay Ratliff became a pretty good player. Mitchell is even more talented, running in the low 4.7’s at 290… he could be special.
