Houston Texans sign OT Tyson Clabo

Former Dolphins OT Tyson Clabo has a new home. The player’s agent Chad Speck says that Clabo has signed on with the Houston Texans. It’s a two year deal, says Adam Caplan.

Clabo graded out as the #45 OT in the NFL last year according to Pro Football Focus. He signed with Miami on a one year deal in 2013 after spending seven seasons in Atlanta. The 32-year-old originally came into the league as an undrafted free agent with the Denver Broncos in 2004 after going to college at Wake Forest.

The Arizona Cardinals reportedly also had a deal on the table for Clabo but were unable to come to terms.

Houston had some offensive line issues in 2013 and are looking to add some veteran depth to an inexperienced unit. Duane Brown and Derek Newton project as the starters at tackle, and Clabo should plug right in as a swing tackle or perhaps a starter depending on how things go in camp. Houston cut tackle Brennan Williams on Tuesday to clear a roster spot.

Houston hopes whoever they plug into the line will be able to protect their new QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. As we know, pass protection has been an issue for Houston in the past.
