FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Patriots rounded out their practice squad on Wednesday morning, adding cornerback Travis Howard, originally an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State for the Houston Texans this past spring.
Howard, 6-foot-1 and 197 pounds, was waived by the Texans near the conclusion of training camp. During his time at Ohio State, he started every game of his junior and senior seasons, amassing 81 tackles, six interceptions and 11 passes defensed during those campaigns.
