2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Brennan Scarlett

A closer look at the Houston Texans roster heading into the 2016 training camp.


A defensive end with the Stanford Cardinal, Brennan Scarlett is being tasked with learning to playing standing up. With the Cardinal, Scarlett became the program's first ever graduate transfer and appeared in 14 games with 37 tackles, 8 tackles for loss, and 5.5 sacks. A transfer from California, Scarlett missed 17 months due to a hand injury that ran into complications, which ended his 2013 season, and then faced being unable to play part of the 2014 season with an ACL injury.


Scarlett will have to get used to playing standing up but has a chance to lock down the fourth outside linebacker spot if he can put together a solid camp. When the pads are put on in training camp, everyone will get a better idea on what he can do. 

Roster Situation

Practice squad is currently Scarlett’s best chance to make the team.
