Report: Texans looking at two veteran CBs

John McClain of the *Houston Chronicle *reports that the Texans are going to give tryouts to veteran cornerbacks Deltha O'Neal and Jason Webster on Thursday. The Texans are thin at corner with Jacques Reeves and Antwaun Molden sidelined with injuries and Dunta Robinson sitting out camp because of a contract dispute.

O'Neal, 32, played in all 16 games with 10 starts for the Patriots last season and recorded three interceptions. He has 34 interceptions in his nine-year career, the first four years of which were spent with the Denver Broncos from 2000-03. The Broncos drafted O'Neal in the first round in 2000 when Texans general manager Rick Smith was the head of their pro personnel department.

Webster, 31, is a Houston native who played at Texas A&M. Like O'Neal, Webster is a nine-year veteran who spent the 2008 season with the Patriots, though Webster played in only spent three games last season.
