It’s easy to miss the other moves the Texans made Wednesday, considering they dropped nearly $100 million on quarterback Brock Osweiler and running back Lamar Miller.

But they also made a pair of additions to the offensive line.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans signed former Raiders center-guard Tony Bergstrom.

He’ll be a candidate to replace Ben Jones, who left for the Titans immediately. The Texans also lost guard Brandon Brooks to the Eagles, so they had spots to fill.

The Texans also signed former Chiefs guard-tackle Jeff Allen, so they now have some versatile guys to plug in, while they rebuild their offense.

    Osweiler can work with a bad offensive line, but it’s a good sign that the Texans are trying to improve in that area. Good offensive line helps the running game which he will need.

    Worst draft pick Reggie has made. Jack of all trades, master of none.

    Very average player. A utility guy, but not really good at anything.

    Jones left for the Titans immediately?

    Good for you Tony! Thanks for the solid effort last year for the Raiders and good luck in the future with the Texans. He filled in admirably when our center Hudson went down. People forget this is a business and a guys gotta do whats best for him and his family. If he got a better deal in Houston, then he would have been a fool to say no. Again, good luck in the future Tony!!

    As someone else mentioned, “Jack of all trades, master of none”…sums up Berns perfectly. Guy can play almost anywhere on the line but his play can be spotty. He is very versatile and that is what he has going for him…Basically a younger slightly better version of Khalif Barnes.

    Berns did fill in rather well for Hudson though so maybe his true calling is as a center.

    Dang Auto-Correct…that was Bergs not Berns.

    Kinda surprised he lasted as long as he did when he couldn’t even beat out Barnes. He played better at center though when Hudson went down. Good luck to him.
