Texans Sign OL Fred Weary

The Texans are progressing nicely this offseason, promptly signing their draft picks before the start of training camp this weekend. Fred Weary, a third-round pick from Tennessee, signed a four-year deal worth about $2.075 million Wednesday.

3rd-round draft pick Fred Weary signed yesterday joining Charles Hill, Chester Pitts and Ramon Walker as draftees who signed deals this week. Only three of the 12 draft choices -- second-round pick Jabar Gaffney, fourth-rounder Jonathan Wells and fifth-round pick Jarrod Baxter remain unsigned.

Weary, a third-round pick from Tennessee, signed a four-year deal reportedly worth $2.075 million. The 6-2, 308-pound lineman can play guard and center, although most of his work so far has come at right guard behind starter DeMingo Graham.

In other news, the Texans waived linebackers Robert Mackey, Casey Tisdale, Aaron Thompson, and offensive tackle John Miller on Wednesday. Tisdale was one of the original 10 players signed by the Texans.

The Texans now have 96 players on their roster, one under the maximum number of players they are allowed to take to training camp. The final spot will likely be occupied by linebacker Keith Mitchell, who could officially sign his contract as early as today.

2nd-Round draft choice Jabar Gaffney has still not be signed. The Texans now have two days to get a deal done before the start of training camp.
