Texans add some defensive line depth with Ricardo Mathews

We’ll have to wait to see if the Texans use the first pick in the draft on a defensive lineman.

But they continue to get younger up front, regardless.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans signed former Colts defensive tackle Ricardo Mathews.

Matthews spent the last four years with the Colts, and has played defensive end in a 3-4 alignment. The 6-foot-3, 300-pounder has been a solid rotational player in the past, with six careerĀ starts.

The Texans lost veterans Antonio Smith and Earl Mitchell in free agency, and brought in former Chiefs defensive tackle Jerrell Powe.

    Another link in the Matthews family football dynasty. Clay Sr., Clay Jr. , Clay III, Bruce, Jake, Casey, Kevin and the black sheep of the family – Ricardo.

    Its Mathews not Matthews, and I think this guy will be trying out at DT bc he is not a good fit as a DE
