Texans Sign Fullback Boomer Grigsby

The Texans have signed former Chiefs and Dolphins fullback Boomer Grigsby. Here’s the report from the teams official website talking about the deal:

In a move to deepen their special teams unit, the Texans signed fullback Boomer Grigsby on Tuesday. Grigsby is entering his fifth year in the NFL and has made a name for himself as a tenacious tackler on kick coverage.

Grigsby began his career in Kansas City, where he was drafted by the Chiefs in the fifth round (138th overall) in 2005 out of Illinois State. In his rookie season with the Chiefs, he played in all 16 regular season games in a reserve role and finished third on the team with 19 special teams tackles.

Before the 2007 season, Grigsby converted from linebacker to fullback, a transition that was documented on the HBO reality series “Hard Knocks.” Grigsby finished that season with two receptions for 14 yards and was third on the team in special teams tackles (12) for the third consecutive season.

Grigsby signed with the Miami Dolphins in 2008 and won a starting job at fullback in the preseason, but he was released by Miami after the first regular season game.

The Texans will look to add Grigsby to a special teams unit that allowed 22.3 yards per return on kickoffs, which ranked 11th in the league.

“Grigsby brings us a toughness that I like,” special teams coordinator Joe Marciano said. “He’s a veteran special teams guy, he’s had his bell rung a few times and he knows how to hit a guy. I’m excited about working with him and getting him into our system.”
