Texans sign rookie TE Adam Schiltz

The Texans signed rookie tight end Adam Schiltz on Thursday afternoon.

Schiltz (6-4, 256) went undrafted out of Division II Emporia State in Kansas. He was one of 17 players who tried out for the Texans during their rookie mini-camp from May 10-12.

The Texans now have a full 90 players on their roster. Schiltz is one of six tight ends along with two-time Pro Bowler Owen Daniels, fourth-year pro Garrett Graham, rookie sixth-round draft pick

Ryan Griffin and first-year pros Jake Byrne and Phillip Supernaw. Supernaw had a chance to compete with Griffin to be the Texans' third tight end but injured his foot on the first day of OTAs and has not yet returned to practice.

Schiltz, 22, had 44 catches for 560 yards and four touchdowns last season. A native of Ponca City, Okla., he had 16 catches for 215 yards and three touchdowns in his final two games.
