Texans Ink Safety Quintin Demps and DE Fili Moala

San Francisco 49ers v New York Giants

The Texans have signed safety Quintin Demps and defensive end Fili Moala, two moves intended to reinforce their defensive depth, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Moala got the veteran minimum on a one-year contract.

Safety Lonny Ballentine has been injured off and on throughout training camp and defensive end Jeoffrey Pagan has been dealing with an injury, too, since the preseason opener against the 49ers.

Demps, 30, played for the Texans from 2010 to 2012 and has 183 career tackles, 11 interceptions and two forced fumbles. Demps is a former Texas-El Paso player who was drafted by the Eagles in the fourth round in 2008. The San Antonio native also returned kickoffs for the Eagles and had a 100-yard return for a touchdown as a rookie.

Demps was with the Giants last season and intercepted four passes with 57 tackles and one forced fumble.

Moala has 88 tackles and 3 1/2 career sacks. The 30-year-old former Colts second-round draft pick has good size at 6-4 and 308 pounds.
