The roster churn never stops, people.

Who is Erik Austell, you ask? I don’t know. But this article from Broncos Wire has some info and video for you, including this blurb:

Watching him play, you’ll notice he has great feet for the position. Quick out of his stance and strong in run blocking, Austell can be a force. The lower level of competition that he did this work against will be a lingering question.

Austell is surely a long shot to make the team, especially with Nick Martin and Greg Mancz around to play center. Nevertheless, he now has his shot to become a member of your Houston Texans.
