The Houston Texans continue to make upgrades at the safety position with the announcement the club has signed former Miami Dolphins safety Chris Clemons to a tw0-year deal.

Clemons, 28, has started 32 games over the last two seasons at strong safety for the Dolphins and has 48 career starts on his resume. Clemons, a former fifth round pick out of Clemson in the 2009 draft is coming off two solid seasons in which he racked up 95 and 92 combined tackles, respectively.
He has three interceptions over the last two seasons but his strength is in run support where he can come down in the box at 6-1, 210-pounds and help the Texans rush defense.
The Texans signed Kendrick Lewis last week, to go with D.J. Swearinger and Shiloh Keo and the addition of Clemons could lead to Danieal Manning being released if he and the team don’t agree to a pay cut from his $4.5 million salary.
