Former Patriot DL Green to Texans

Former Patriots defensive lineman Jarvis Green signed a one-year contract with the Houston Texans today, his agent Albert Elias said.

Green played for the Patriots from 2002-2009 before signing a free-agent deal with the Broncos this past offseason. But Green was cut at the end of training camp and did not hook on with another team.

The Texans, like the Patriots, have been hit with a significant injury along their defensive line as they placed Mario Williams on injured reserve today with a sports hernia.

Meanwhile, the Patriots signed free-agent defensive lineman Louis Leonard today.
