Although your Houston Texans were rather quiet—in much the same way a mausoleum is—in free agency, the organization did make a handful of moves long after the initial, secondary, and tertiary waves of annual player movement ended. At the time, we weren’t privy to the terms of the contracts they gave Breno Giacomini, Sio Moore, and Dres Anderson, but Aaron Wilson has the details now.
First, here are the terms of Houston’s deal with Giacomini, who they brought in a little more than a month ago.
Texans' one-year deal for Breno Giacomini: $2.75M, $1M salary (nongtd), $750K signing bonus, up to $1M total per game active roster bonus— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) June 20, 2017
Texans' one-year deal for Sio Moore: $775,000, cap figure $615,000, team used veteran minimum salary benefit— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) June 20, 2017
Texans' one-year deal for Dres Anderson: $465,000, including injury waiver— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) June 20, 2017
What does it all mean for the Texans’ cap situation? As usual, Troy is all over it.

According to Troy’s calculations, the Texans currently have $31,334,970.00 in cap space. Surely the inevitable DeAndre Hopkins extension will be announced before training camp, right?
