Texans Interested in CBs Dyson, Bryant

The Houston Texans have expressed interest in two veteran unrestricted free agent cornerbacks: Andre Dyson and Fernando Bryant. It is known that the Texans are in dire need of help at the cornerback position, and adding one or two veteran cornerbacks could change up their draft board tremendously. CB Dunta Robinson will be out until at least November while, as of now, CBs Fred Bennett and Jacques Reeves will be the Texans starting corners heading into training camp. The Texans will be trying to sign a veteran cornerback before drafting one or more in April’s Draft. Dyson and/or Bryant could definitely add to the Texans’ experience in the secondary and coverage units, and perhaps allow the Texans to think young RB, DL or versatile CB/S with the 18th pick in the Draft.

Dyson, formerly of the New York Jets, played in only 9 games last season totaling 12 tackles, four pass deflections and one interception. In 96 games, Dyson registered 317 tackles, 61 pass deflections, 22 interceptions and four touchdowns. He has played for the Jets, Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans in his eight-year career.

Bryant, formerly of the Detroit Lions, was sought after by the Texans in 2004 before he signed with the Lions. Now Bryant is on the market after starting all 16 games last season totaling 69 tackles, 13 pass deflections and 2 interceptions. In 10 seasons, starting in all but one game of his 110 career games, Bryant has registered 357 tackles, 54 pass deflections and seven interceptions. He has played for the Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars.
