Houston Texans re-sign CB Tavierre Thomas to a 1-year deal

The Houston Texans have re-signed slot cornerback Tavierre Thomas to a one-year, $3 million contract.

Thomas, 27, was originally signed by the Texans in 2021 after three seasons with the Browns to a two-year, $4 million deal. In the 10 games he appeared in last season, he tallied 41 tackles, one pass defended, two forced fumbles, and one tackle for loss. In the 27 targets recorded against him in 2022, he allowed only 14 receptions (51.9% comp.) for 89 yards. Thomas was one of Houston’s highest-graded defenders by PFF, with a final defensive coverage grade of 75.0.

Thomas was elevated to a starting role and became one of Houston’s better defensive backs in the 2022 season. With the recent signing of defensive back Jimmy Ward, a season of experience under the belt of last year’s rookie defensive backs Derek Stingley Jr. and Jalen Pitre, and a bevy of draft picks in the upcoming NFL Draft, a significant improvement in the Texans pass coverage is quite likely.
