The Houston Texans have agreed to a two year deal worth $2.4 million with free agent offensive tackle Tyson Clabo according to his agent Chad Speck. The Texans were in need of some help at offensive tackle with no real experience at the position behind current starters Duane Brown and Derek Newton.
Texans To Sign Tyson Clabo
Clabo is entering his 10th season in the NFL where he has spent time with the Denver Broncos, Atlanta Falcons and Miami Dolphins. His best seasons came in Atlanta where he had a Pro Bowl appearance in 2010 under then associate offensive line coach Paul Dunn. Dunn is now the offensive line coach in Houston and the team brought in Clabo in for a visit late during mandatory mini-camp.
At 6-6 and 315 lbs., Clabo is expected to provide a solid swing tackle and depth for the offensive line. At 32 years old this comes as a smart signing for the short term and gives the Texans a much needed piece to the current roster.
