According to separate reports from FOX 26 Houston and the Houston Chronicle, the Texans have agreed to a contract with free agent linebacker Danny Clark. There has been no announcement from the team at this time.
Clark played for the Texans in 2007, recording 43 tackles and an interception in 13 games played, and was an excellent leader in the locker room. He spent the 2008-09 seasons with the New York Giants, starting in 26 of 32 games.
A 10-year veteran who has played with five teams, Clark would add exeprience to a young linebacker corps that will be without Brian Cushing for the first four games of the season. Yesterday, general manager Rick Smith indicated that the Texans would survey the free agent market to potentially add depth in light of Cushing's four-game suspension from the NFL.
"Of course, we'll look around and see if there's anybody out there that might be able to come in and help us," Smith said.
