Texans sign CB O'Neal, RB Hall

E-mail Print PDF

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans have signed free agent cornerback Deltha O'Neal and free agent running back Andre Hall, released rookie defensive tackle Jake Visser and waived injured rookie running back Jeremiah Johnson.

The 32-year-old O'Neal played for New England last season, making 32 tackles and intercepting three passes in 16 games. O'Neal, the 15th overall pick by Denver in the 2000 draft, played four seasons for the Broncos and four with Cincinnati before signing with the Patriots before last season.

O'Neal shores up a secondary already missing two starters in camp. Jacques Reeves is out 6-8 weeks to recover from a broken leg and Dunta Robinson is sitting out because of a contract dispute.

Hall rushed for 360 yards on 79 carries in 18 games with one start for Denver over the previous two seasons. He joined the Broncos in 2007 as an undrafted free agent out of South Florida.

Johnson, an undrafted free agent, arrived at Texans camp still bothered by a dislocated right shoulder he sustained during his senior season at Oregon in 2008.
