Texans sign ex-Patriots RB Rex Burkhead

       The Texans have signed free-agent running back Rex Burkhead. Burkhead spent the last four seasons with the New England Patriots after playing four with the Cincinnati Bengals. He suffered a season-ending knee injury last November, in which he missed six games.

The 30-year-old joins a deep backfield in Houston led by David Johnson and recently signed free agents Phillip Lindsay and Mark Ingram.

Burkhead is a versatile back, helping the Patriots win Super Bowl LII. He averaged 4.4 yards per carry over the last two campaigns while amassing nine total touchdowns and 52 receptions.

The Texans added a large number of veterans to their offense this spring amid the uncertainty surrounding star quarterback Deshaun Watson’s status. Tyrod Taylor, Marcus Cannon, and Chris Conley were among those added to David Culley’s squad this offseason.

The Texans recently added Jeff Driskel to their quarterbacks roster and Taywan Taylor to their receivers group.

He becomes the 12th receiver on the team’s offseason roster.

Taylor, 26, has spent the past two seasons with the Browns but made no catches in six total games. He played three games last year, seeing only 22 snaps.

QB Deshaun Watson faces 22 lawsuits alleging sexual assault and inappropriate behavior.

He is being investigated by the HPD and the NFL.
