The Houston Texans have signed veteran right tackle Breno Giacomini to come in and compete for the right tackle position. Giacomini is coming off back surgery that ended his 2016 season but now deemed healthy by Texans doctors. He enters the fold with a chance to be the Texans starting right tackle for week one.
Giacomini was a 5th round pick by the Green Bay Packers in 2008 out of Louisville and has played for the Seattle Seahawks and New York Jets. He won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks when he started at right tackle in their win over the Denver Broncos.
Signed by the New York Jets in free agency prior to the 2014 season, Giacomini started every game for the Jets during the 2014 and 2015 season before injuring his back prior to the 2016 season. Missing the first seven game, he was activated in week 8 but only to be placed on the injured reserve in December re-injuring his back.
Giacomini spent time with Texans offensive line coach Mike Devlin with the Jets and will be reunited with his former coach in Houston.
