The Houston Texans have made a pair of small roster moves and one fairly significant one.
According to KPRC2 Houston, the Houston Texans have re-signed their starting center from 2022, Scott Quessenberry.
Quessenberry, 27, took over as the team’s starting center in Week 2 after Justin Britt took a leave of absence from the team following Week 1. He gives the team a starting option at center again for 2023.
A former fifth-round draft pick by the Los Angeles Chargers in 2018, Quessenberry is entering his sixth year in the NFL and second with the Texans. He is the younger brother of former Texans’ sixth-round pick and current Buffalo Bills OL David Quessenberry.
The Texans also plan to release linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin, according to KPRC2’s Aaron Wilson.
Reeves-Maybin, 28, was primarily a special teams player for the Texans in 2022. He was active in 15 games, recording 15 tackles and a fumble recovery. Reeves-Maybin signed a two-year, $7.5 million contract with Houston last season, including $5 million guaranteed. The move will save the team $2.25 million in cap space while creating a $2 million dead cap charge.
The Texans also claimed quarterback E.J. Perry off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Perry, 24, signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Brown with the Jaguars last season. He was a member of the Jaguars practice squad last season.
In his final year at Brown, Perry won the Bushnell Cup as the Ivy League’s top offensive player. He also received the highest overall athleticism score of all quarterbacks at the 2022 NFL Combine.
Perry is now one of two quarterbacks on the Texans roster, along with incumbent starter Davis Mills.
