Texans taking a look at Joe Mays

Quarterback Matt Schaub may not have to worry about losing a piece of his ear to linebacker Joe Mays in 2013.  Unless Mays decides to blast Schaub in practice.

The Texans are bringing the former Broncos linebacker in for a tryout, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

As McClain explains, the Texans need depth at inside linebacker.  And, coincidentally, Mays needs a job.

Cut last week with a $4 million base salary, Mays has visited the Redskins.
