Texans Re-Sign Matt Turk


In a surprising move today, the Houston Texans has signed 45 year old Matt Turk. It is presumably to give Shane Lecher competition, a 13 year veteran. If somehow, someway he makes the team, he would by far be the oldest player in the NFL (by 4 years, the closest is Colts Kicker Adam Vinatieri who is 41).

Turk started his career with the Washington Redskins, followed by stints in Miami (2 times), New York Jets, St. Louis Rams (he also was on the pre-season roster with the rams in 1994 when they were still known as the Los Angeles Rams), and Jacksonsville. He played for the Texans from 2007-2010 as well as the last part of the 2011 season after Brett Hartmann tore his ACL.

Turk, who still lives in Houston, told John McClain of the Houston Chronicle: "I can't believe they wanted to sign me back. When David (Canter, Turk's agent) told me they offered me a contract, I was in tears. I just couldn't believe it. I really enjoyed myself in a Texans uniform and some day want to retire a Texan".
