Offensive linemen are starting to come off the board, with tackle Seantrel Henderson the latest.

Henderson has agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with the Texans, NFL Media reports.

Henderson, 25, has made only one start the past two seasons and that was as an extra lineman. He has 27 career starts.

But Henderson, who has Crohn’s disease, has served 14 games in substance-abuse suspensions in four seasons.

The Texans have sought to upgrade their offensive line, with three and possibly four new starters. Their left tackle spot proved a revolving door with Duane Brown‘s holdout and subsequent trade to the Seahawks, and Houston remains interested in Nate Solder.

  1. He was an absolute steal his first season in Buffalo. I have no idea what happened after that, maybe his disease really took a toll, but he went from a starting LT to reserve. He has the talent, he behaved himself for the most part(the suspensions stemmed from him using alternative methods to handling his Crohn’s disease, and I’ll never knock a guy for doing that), but just never could hold down a slot.

  2. Good signing by the Texans. Crohn’s hurt his development. When healthy has all-pro abilities.

  3. He has played better than average at times….3 years ago. He had big potential and hype at University of Miami but was a 7th rd pick because of his downside. It has played out the exact same way in the NFL. He could be a good RT – he is a huge tackle

  4. Very good when healthy. Crohn’s took its toll, as the guy lost 40 lbs in a couple of weeks. He had to have parts of his bowle removed. Used prescribed pot, but league did not approve. Has been able to keep his weight up and could be a steal.

  5. The suspension stemmed from getting caught smoking pot twice. He knew he couldn’t do that under the CBA, and did it anyway. I think it’s a stupid that it’s illegal (or that the NFL bothers testing for it) myself, but it is what it is, and the guy never should have put himself and his teammates in that bind by taking it on himself to smoke up.

    Happy to see him move on, as I was with Dareus. I’ll be even happier next season when Incognito’s contract expires.

    Incognito is the best player on Buffalo’s O-line. Did someone get picked on as a child, or what?
