The Houston Texans pushed their roster back to the league allowed 90 heading into mandatory mini-camp. The team waived injured rookie, Richard Leonard, who tore his hamstring during OTAs.
The Texans claimed third-year player, Terrance Mitchell, from the Dallas Cowboys. Mitchell appeared in three games in 2015, with 12 total tackles, an interception, and a sack.
We asked Cowboy HQ's, Mike Fisher about the Texans new cornerback and former Cowboys defensive back.
Scrappy fighter who had to run through the Cowboys roster since being drafted here a couple of years ago… They gave him some work at safety last week and it really was a surprise to me that they released him .. I'm wondering if the new defense back coach has his own particular favorites ... But at one time including the end of last year long – when he made one of just two interceptions for Dallas quarterbacks all season long – we really thought he was in competition for the fourth cornerback job
Mitchell was a 7th-round pick out of Oregon in the 2014 NFL Draft, selected by the Dallas Cowboys. Mitchell also spent time with the Chicago Bears in 2014.
Mitchell has played in 8 career games.
