Texans Make Roster Moves Following the Trade for WR Mason

The Texans official site updated their roster moves today after the trade for WR Derrick Mason:

The Texans have traded the New York Jets a conditional 2012 draft pick for veteran wide receiver Derrick Mason. They also have signed wide reciever Trindon Holliday and outside linebacker Jesse Nading to the active roster.

Holliday will return punts and kickoffs, allowing receiver Jacoby Jones and safety Danieal Manning to focus on their primary positions. Nading takes the roster spot of Mario Williams, who was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle.

The Texans released running back Chris Ogbonnaya and wide receiver David Anderson. They signed linebacker Thaddeus Gibson and wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias to their practice squad.

Mason, 37, has topped 1,000 receiving yards in eight of the last 10 seasons. He ranks 18th all-time with 12,006 career yards. He recently was relegated to the bench in his first season in New York, and the Texans were thin at receiver with hamstring injuries hobbling Andre Johnson and Bryant Johnson.
