Texans bring back Quintin Demps

The Texans didn’t extend a tender offer to safety Quintin Demps as a restricted free agent, but he’ll be back with the team anyway.
The team announced Thursday that they have re-signed Demps. Terms of the contract were not disclosed in the statement released by the Texans.
Demps signed with the team in October after failing to make the final cut out of training camp. He recorded 22 tackles and two interceptions in nine regular season games and also returned five kickoffs. He added three more tackles in the Texans’ two playoff games. He’ll fight Shiloh Keo and Troy Nolan for playing time behind Glover Quin and Danieal Manning.
He originally joined the Texans late in the 2010 season after a stint in the UFL following his departure from the Eagles. Demps, a fourth-round pick in 2008, was waived by the Eagles before the start of his third season with the team.

    heh.. Texans secondary depth is the best in football hands down. Ed Reed? no, but Troy Nolan and Demps can be pretty good. Glover Quinn is underrated by most imo and Danieal Manning is one of the more versatile players at safety He return’s kicks and does decent in the slot I believe. Plus his speed and coverage skills are crazy helpful.

    I guess this makes amends for Williams, Winston, and Ryans.

    Im biased on this one. Demps and I share an alma mater, so its always good to see your school repped. But I thought he was good down the stretch. Plus he can play some decent coverage. Im excited.
