The Houston Texans moved (somewhat) swiftly to remove former Michigan State wide receiver Keith Mumphery and linebacker Max Bullough after two separate incidents tarnished their tenor with the Texans and ultimately resuled in their release.

Rick Smith moved even quicker to add Mumphery and Bullough’s replacements, as the team signed wide receiver Dres Anderson and linebacker Sio Moore, the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson reports.

Anderson, 24, is a four-year practice squad veteran with San Francisco 49ers (2015-16) and Chicago Bears (2016-17). Before going undrafted out of college, Anderson played four years at the University of Utah. He finished with 134 receptions for 2,077 yards and 17 receiving touchdowns in Utes career.

Anderson is the son of Flipper Anderson, who won a Super Bowl with the Broncos in 1997.

Moore, 27, is a four-year veteran who previously played with the Raiders, Colts, Chiefs, and Cardinals. He started seven games during the 2016 season, three with the Cardinals and four with the Colts. In 2016, he had one pass defended, two forced fumbles, and 25 tackles.

Moore was originally a third-round pick out of Connecticut by the Raiders.
