Apparently, Stanford Routt saw enough in Houston, and the Texans saw enough from Stanford Routt.

Cancelling a planned trip to Pittsburgh for another workout tomorrow, Routt has signed with the Texans, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

Routt gives the Texans an experienced option, with Brice McClain going on injured reserve and uncertainty over the health of Johnathan Joseph and Alan Ball.

He also may have preferred the familiar surroundings, after growing up in Austin Tex., and playing in college at the University of Houston.
