According to an Associated Press report in the Dallas Morning News, the Texans have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with free agent guard Wade Smith. The report says that Smith's Nashville-based agent, Brian Parker, confirmed the deal. John McClain of the Houston Chronicle is also reporting the news on Twitter.
Smith visited the Texans on Sunday and Monday. He sandwiched that visit between meetings with the Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals, with whom Smith finished meeting on Tuesday night.
A Dallas native, Smith is a versatile player who has experience at every position on the offensive line. Here's what Texans coach Gary Kubiak told HoustonTexans.com about him after Smith's visit wrapped up on Monday:
"(Versatility) is the biggest thing with him," Kubiak said. "I've chased this kid a couple of times. I chased him in Denver, and now I get a chance here in Houston. He can play a lot of spots. We see him as an inside player. We want him to come compete at the center/guard position for our football team. We think that's going to be a very competitive position for our team this year, so we'll see what he thinks of it."
