Texans waive Ogunleye, sign Jamison


The Texans have waived defensive end Adewale Ogunleye and signed defensive end Tim Jamison from their practice squad.

Jamison was actually cut by the Texans on Sept. 15 to help make room for Ogunleye. Ogunleye and defensive end Ryan Denney were brought in as veteran replacements for Jamison and Connor Barwin, who suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 1. Denney was released on Oct. 7 for Mark Anderson.

Ogunleye (6-4, 260), an 11th-year pro, joins Denney on the chopping block after playing in four games with the Texans. He had two tackles.

Jamison (6-3, 273) was added to the Texans' practice squad last Monday. He had one assisted tackle in the 2010 season opener and played in six games in 2009 as an undrafted rookie out of Michigan, contributing mostly on special teams. He had 20 sacks in four seasons at Michigan.

With Jamison's promotion, the Texans now have 10 players on their 53-man roster with previous practice squad experience: David Anderson, Mike Brisiel, Arian Foster, Jamison, Vonta Leach, Chris Myers, Jesse Nading, Malcolm Sheppard, Antonio Smith and Kevin Walter.
