UPDATE: Texans Sign Tyler Ervin, K.J. Dillon, D.J. Reader to Rookie Contracts

New, comments

Three down, three to go.

The Texans have signed two of their six total draft picks today. I guess we can now officially welcome K.J. Dillon and D.J. Reader to the City of Houston.

Dillon and Reader are both expected to be depth and/or special teams contributors as they start their careers, but there is a good chance that they could see the field in a bigger capacity by 2017 as Vince Wilfork’s career winds down and Dillon gets more snaps as a dime safety. For the time being, however, the only thing on their minds will be rookie minicamps starting this weekend.

UPDATE: Mark Berman reports the Texans have now also signed fourth-round pick RB Tyler Ervin out of San Jose State.
