The Houston Texans will sign free agent wide receiver Dres Anderson after waiving Keith Mumphery to fill in an open spot on the depth chart. Anderson is the son of former NFL wide receiver Flipper Anderson who played in the NFL from 1988 to 1997.
Anderson played his college football at Utah from 2010-2014 where he finished his career with 134 receptions for 2,077 yards and 17 receiving touchdowns. After going undrafted after the 2015 NFL Draft due to a knee issue, Anderson signed a free agent deal with the San Francisco 49ers and spent 2015 and 2016 on the practice squad. Anderson also spent time on the Chicago Bears practice squad in 2016 and 2017.
Anderson will have to do work to lock up the final wide receiver spot on the depth chart to make the final roster.
