Nick Caserio doesn’t sleep. What can’t he do. That man is an absolute mad man. Outrunning the sun, signing the great free agents available that the NFL doesn’t know is available. Last night, while you were sleeping, Caserio was working, and he signed another former Cleveland Brown, another cornerback, Tavierre Thomas is now a Houston Texan after signing a two-year contract. WOOF. WOOF. Come on down.

Thomas is a former undrafted free agent from Ferris State. He’s played in 45 games, and finally made his first career start last season, making three with the Browns. In those three games he allowed a 79.2% completion percentage, 19 catches on 24 targets, and 1 touchdown. He also had some production as a tackler. Last season in Cleveland Thomas had one sack, two tackles for a loss, and one quarterback hit.

Like the other free agents Caserio has signed, Thomas isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty in the kicking game. Thomas played 41%, 83%, and 80%, of the Browns special teams snaps.

All in all, Thomas is another body in the cornerback room to compete this summer, and at a minimum, he’ll be available for the kicking game to help turnaround a shoddy Texans special teams.
