Secondary Bolstered With Signing of Demps

The Houston Texans made another move to improve their secondary yesterday as they re-signed FS Will Demps to a two-year, $4.7 million contract. The signing brings back the 28-year old Demps who started 8 games at safety for the Texans in 2007.

Demps, one of the few starting Blasians (Black-Asian) in the NFL, was voted to the Pro Bowl for his ever growing popularity, effective play, pass break-ups and exciting hits. For the Texans, he totaled 52 tackles, two forced fumbles and four pass deflections in 15 games.

Demps may arguably be the most experienced and best fit for the Texans FS position going into the 2008 season, and the Texans may slow their search down for an incoming FA or rookie FS out of April’s Draft. At 6’0″ and 208lbs, Demps has the athletic ability to be a starter in the NFL, but the sixth year veteran struggled to pull in the interceptions that came right to him throughout 2007.

    I agree, Demps is probably our best choice at free safety right now. He has played under some of the best defensive teams in the league, like the Ravens and Giants, so he brings a lot of experience and winning attitude to the Texans. I don’t mind the lack of interceptions as much, as long as he’s making plays and getting his hands in there to shut down opposing offenses. Overall, he will definitely help out our inexperienced secondary. A corner in the draft would be nice though.

    And touche on the use of Blasian
