Today, the Houston Texans signed Ryan Langford, an ILB tryout UDFA.

Langford played his college ball at New Mexico as a member of the Lobos. The Iowa native arrived in New Mexico for the 2014 season after playing Junior College football for Iowa Western Community College.

While Langford was welcomed to the team, Eric Lee, from the University of South Florida, was shown the door.

The OLB had hoped to make it to training camp, but will not be one of the 90 men destined to spend the summer sweating in the Houston heat and humidity. At USF, Lee played DE, and was team captain and an All-Conference Second Team selection, yet the Alabama native was going to have to transition from the line to playing in space; his waiver proves that transition isn't easy.

Moves like this aren't abnormal in the off-season, and there's sure to be more in the coming days.
