The Texans still haven’t had that dark day where they squash the dreams of dozens of players, forcing them to rethink their lives and ponder becoming a solar contractor, a software developer, or a coach instead of playing football for a profession. That time will sometime before the mandatory September 3rd 3:00 p.m. CDT 53-man roster deadline.
Before the guillotine is rolled out, minor moves will be made. Houston made three small ones yesterday.
Houston signed a five-year veteran named Mike Catapano. He was a seventh round pick by Kansas City. He lasted two seasons there before being waived and found his way to the New York Jets’ practice squad. After that, he played two games for the Jets in 2015, had a season-ending foot injury, and didn’t play much at all after that.
The other two names you know if you scrutinize the Texans’ roster moves. Devin Street was claimed off waivers from the Jets just last month. He gone now. Replacing him and moving back onto the active roster is Joel Heath. Heath should be expected to play some this year and could compete for the starting defensive end spot opposite of J.J. Watt.
