Texans Officially Sign Ryan Harris

Potassium Benzoate content unknown.

As TDC noted here, your Houston Texans planned on signing Ryan Harris to their 53-man roster once he passed a physical. Harris has now passed his physical, so he's officially a Texan. More on the newest member of the Texans after the jump.

From Nick Scurfield, via the post linked above the jump:

Harris (6-5, 300) was released by the Broncos on Friday. He was a third-round draft pick out of Notre Dame in 2007, when Texans offensive coordinator Rick Dennison was Denver's offensive coordinator. Dennison coached Harris for four seasons, during which time Harris played right and left tackle.

The 27-year-old Harris was hampered by a back injury in 2007, shoulder and toe injuries in 2009 and an ankle injury in 2010. He started 16 games in 2008, eight in 2009 and 10 in 2010. He was not on an NFL roster last season until the Broncos signed him on Jan. 2 for the playoffs.

PFW had this to say about Harris:

Harris, 27, spent two stints with the Broncos sandwiched around a preseason stint with the Eagles last summer. He had back surgery in September 2011 but is well versed in the zone-blocking system used by Houston.

So it looks like the Texans got a veteran who's intimately familiar with the zone-blocking scheme, which is good. It also looks like Harris has a troubling injury history that has cost him a lot of games, which is bad. But Harris comes with a free frogurt, which is good.
