Texans sign Adewale Ogunleye

+Read full article

Texan’s 2009 2nd round pick defensive end Connor Barwin suffered a season ending ankle injury in the win against the Colts last Sunday. Barwin showed huge potential in his rookie season and the coaches love his work ethic so they were very disappointed to see him carted off the field in the first game of the season. But the NFL is a business and the show must go on so the Texans signed 10 year veteran Adewale Ogunleye this week to play defensive end in place of Barwin. Ogunleye, who played the last 6 seasons with the Bears, helped Chicago get to the Super Bowl in 2007 and has had two seasons of over 10 sacks. His veteran presence will certainly benefit the Texan’s defense, which looked very good against Indianapolis. Although Barwin wasn’t a starter, he saw the field a lot on 3rd downs and pass rushing situations. His role of situational pass rusher will likely be filled by Ogunleye and 2nd year defensive end Jesse Nading.

[picappgallerysingle id=”6960297″]Ogunleye will provide a boost to the Texan’s D-Line in pass rushing situations. Connor Barwin’s injury will likely force Ogunleye into early duty, as early as this Sunday against the Redskins.

Texans Actually Tried J.J. Watt At QB

There's something to be said for pulling out all the stops and using every trick play in the book to win a playoff game, but bringing in J.J. Watt to play quarterback in the wildcat formation was probably a giveaway that he would be running the ball.
