After hosting free agent offensive tackle Will Yeatman for a visit last week, the Houston Texans agreed to terms with the free agent. What should Texans fans expect from the newest addition?

Aaron Wilson reports that Will Yeatman's visit with the Texans must have gone well, because the team has signed the free agent offensive tackle to a two-year contract. Terms of the deal are not known at this time.

A bit of background on Yeatman from our friends at The Phinsider can be found here. An excerpt:

Yeatman originally signed with the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent tight end in 2011. He was waived at the end of the preseason, with many expecting him to re-sign with New England as a member of their practice squad once he cleared waivers. Instead, Miami claimed him. During the 2012 offseason, Miami new head coach Joe Philbin moved Yeatman from tight end to offensive line, playing both tackle and guard positions.

He appeared in 15 games during his career with the Dolphins, three as a rookie, four in 2012, and eight last year. He took 17 offensive snaps for the Dolphins in 2013, primarily serving as a sixth offensive lineman, reporting as a tackle eligible as Miami looked for an answer to the constant pressure on quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

It appears there was some hope, at least entering 2013, of Yeatman becoming a contributor for the Dolphins before he got hurt last year, but the fact is that Miami didn't see fit to tender him as a restricted free agent after the season. Thus, I'm not bullish on the idea of Yeatman becoming a solution for the Texans at right tackle. Your thoughts?
