Houston Texans sign safety Kendrick Lewis

The Houston Texans improved their safety position by signing former Kansas City Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis according to his personal twitter handle.

This was a team that I figured would compete with the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos for the number one seed in the AFC, but the team ended up falling flat on their faces.

The four year veteran out of the University of Mississippi has played in 53 games with the Chiefs, while recording a career 172 combined tackles, two forced fumbles, one recovery and seven interceptions with one touchdown.

He’ll likely take the starting job over Shilo Keo, who started 11 out of 16 games for the Texans at free safety. Keo recorded one interception and 63 combined tackles in 2013.

This move could either remove Jawanza Starling off the roster or keep him on the special teams unit. Either way, this is a great pick up by the Houston Texans organization.

    Good luck with that. It will get very frustrating seeing him get burnt repeatedly and constantly miss tackles.
