The Texans have added a defensive lineman who’s worked with new defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel.
The 27-year-old Powe was a sixth-round pick of Kansas City in 2011. He has appeared in 12 regular season games in three seasons. The Chiefs did not tender him as a restricted free agent.
Crennel was the Chiefs’ defensive coordinator when Powe was drafted. In Houston, the 6-foot-2, 331-pound Powe would seem likely to compete for playing time in the middle of Houston’s three-player defensive line.
