Texans sign Tyson Clabo

The Texans added some experience to their offensive line on Wednesday.

Agent Chad Speck announced on Twitter that his client Tyson Clabo has agreed to terms on a contract with the Texans. Speck offered no details on the deal, but Adam Caplan of ESPN reports it is a two-year contract. Caplan also reports that Clabo had contract discussions with the Cardinals after a visit that came to nothing as the two sides couldn’t agree on money.

Clabo spent last season with the Dolphins and started 15 games as part of a line that allowed 58 sacks over the course of the season. He was a starter with the Falcons for the previous seven seasons as well, holding down the right side of the line in both Atlanta and Miami.

Clabo will likely compete with incumbent Texans right tackle Derek Newton, who is coming off a rough year of his own in Houston. 2013 third-round pick Brennan Williams was thought to be Newton’s chief competition, but the Texans released Williams this week.

    What the heck happened to that Texans O-Line? They were really good not too long ago.

    The Texans had too much money invested in their line a few years back. So they released Eric Winston and sacrificed Mike Brisiel to free agency. Then they got no one to step up.

    We dont get better with time, unlike a good wine. Last yr Tyson was a turnstile masquerading as a RT. Lots of luck to the Texans.

    Hopefully the coaches won’t leave him on an island with Mario Williams like last year, yikes!
