The Houston Texans are in the midst of training camp. The current roster has Max Scharping, Lane Taylor, Cole Turner, Justin McCray, and Hjalte Froholdt at guard, while they work to sort out what they want to do with Tytus Howard and Marcus Cannon. Cannon and Taylor sitting on the PUP list as they recover from offseason surgery and last year’s injury.
In the throes of training camp, Houston decided that this isn’t enough depth or competition. The Texans added another guard in Danny Isidora.

Isidora is a Minnesota Vikings fifth round pick who started three games there. He moved onto Miami in 2019, making three starts on their infamously awful offensive line, and ended up as a backup in Kansas City as they fought through their own injury problems.
It’s more depth, it’s more competition, it’s more of the same. Expect for Isidora to be cut sometime this summer, and maybe, just maybe, he’ll catch a practice squad spot.
