Per John Clayton and ESPN, the Houston Texans have agreed to terms with DT Shaun Cody, formerly of the Detroit Lions. Cody has 91 career tackles, 36 of which came last year. In 2005, Cody's rookie season, he tallied 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble, but he hasn't been able to record any since.
Cody's most important attribute is that he is 6'4", 310 pounds, which gives Frank Bush and Bill Kollar another option at NT besides the developing Frank Okam and the terrible Travis Johnson. The Texans have now found free agent acquisitions for two of their weakest positions last year--NT and DE. Not bad.
