The Browns waived offensive tackle Roderick Johnson on Tuesday when they signed Greg Robinson, but Johnson didn’t have to wait long to find a new home.

The NFL’s daily transaction report brings word that the Texans have claimed Johnson off of waivers and added him to their 90-man roster. They waived tackle Kendall Calhoun in a corresponding move.

Johnson was a fifth-round pick by the Browns in 2017 and he made a couple of preseason starts before missing the regular season while on injured reserve with a knee injury. He was named the top offensive lineman in the ACC twice during his time at Florida State.

Johnson joins a tackle group in Houston that includes Julien Davenport, Seantrel Henderson and 2018 third-round pick Martinas Rankin.
