The Texans have added another Chiefs veteran to their defense.

The club has signed free safety Kendrick Lewis to a one-year contract, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reported on Friday.

Via his verified Twitter account, Lewis indicated he was joining Houston.

Lewis, 25, has made 50 starts in four NFL seasons, intercepting seven passes in that span. In Houston, he’ll play for defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, who served in the same role and as head coach in Lewis’ first three seasons in Kansas City.

Lewis joins D.J. Swearinger, Shiloh Keo and Danieal Manning on the Texans’ depth chart at safety.

Lewis’ signing comes three days after the Texans signed Chiefs nose tackle Jerrell Powe.

    While I am not sad he is moving on elsewhere for his career. His play is not entirely his fault. Dude played the most snaps by far last season. Give a guy a little break.

    As a chief fan that’s seen every nfl game he’s ever played have texans watched his film??? Worst FS in the nfl not wanting to tackle n not being able to cover is not the best combo

    don’t forget lack of speed and poor angles…

    Texans GM owes the fan base an apology for this one.

    I wish him well. He is a great person just not able to excel at this level to be a starter.

    Good Luck, Kendrick. Romeo, you’re in my prayers.

    Most likely a special team guy for the Texans. Not a starter, still think Texans should get a Fs in the 4th or 5th round in draft.
