2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Eddie Pleasant

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


Entering his fourth season with the Texans, Eddie Pleasant has been plugging away to put himself into the lineup. Arriving as a rookie free agent, Pleasant was a special teams player who turned himself into one of the top three safeties for the Texans defense. Playing mainly in the box, Pleasant defends well in tight spaces and covers ground in a hurry. Romeo Crennel found the perfect spot for Pleasant to contribute on a high level within the defense and it paid off for the team last season. 


The Texans brought Pleasant back on a two-year deal and he will enter camp as the team’s third safety in nickel and dime situations. He will also continue to be part of the special teams unit which depends on him in coverage and the return game. There is still plenty for Pleasant to do to fine tune his game, but he has taken some strides since Bill O’Brien and his staff arrived. 

Roster Situation 

Eddie Pleasant will be on the 53-man roster once again.
