According to Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson, the Houston Texans are signing former Bills edge rusher, Jerry Hughes.

Hughes is 33 years old and recorded 2 sacks and 7 QB hits in 2021 while playing in all 17 games. The Texans hired former Bills assistant defensive line coach, Jacques Cesaire, as their defensive line coach this offseason. It appears Nick Caserio is bringing in some players Cesaire was familiar with in Buffalo.

The Texans opted to address the secondary with their premium draft picks, so GM Nick Caserio is adding talent to the defensive line with free agents like Hughes. Just last week, the Texans agreed to terms with former Bills defensive lineman Mario Addison (7 sacks last season) to a 2-year contract and Houston also signed former Seahawks DE Rasheen Green (6.5 sacks last season) to a 1-year deal after the NFL Draft.

The Texans appear to be putting together a veteran rotation of pass rushers to go along with Jonathan Greenard, who is going into his third season in the league.

This week, we react to Laremy Tunsil's absence from Houston Texans OTAs and wonder if he really loves football or if he just loves what football provides him. Tunsil was given more money in the off-season after reworking his contract, and this is coming off a season when Tunsil was only supposed to miss four or five games after suffering a thumb injury in October. But Tunsil missed the rest of the season, which had many fans and media scratching their heads.

Finally, because of Tunsil's apparent disinterest in being with the team, it might be time for the Texans to trade Tunsil, and get something in return before likely cutting him next off-season.
