The Houston Texans re-signed unrestricted free agent QB Brandon Weeden.

HOUSTON – The Houston Texans re-signed unrestricted free agent QB Brandon Weeden. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Weeden played in two games, making one start, for the Texans last season after being claimed off waivers on Nov. 19, 2015. He led Houston to its first-ever win in Indianapolis (12/20) after entering the game in the second quarter for QB T.J. Yates, who exited due to injury. Weeden finished the contest completing 11-of-18 passes for 105 yards, one touchdown and a 95.8 passer rating. The following week at Tennessee (12/27), he started and led the team to a 34-6 victory over the Titans, connecting on 15-of-24 pass attempts for 200 yards, two touchdowns and a career-high 116.7 passer rating. Weeden also added his first career rushing touchdown and became the first player in franchise history to record two passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown in a game.

In 34 career games (25 starts), Weeden has completed 559-of-965 passes for 6,462 yards, 31 touchdowns, 30 interceptions and a 76.0 passer rating. He was originally selected by Cleveland with the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma State and spent two seasons with the Browns (2012-13). Weeden signed with the Cowboys in 2014 and played in nine games, making four starts in two seasons (2014-15) with the team.
