Dent’s agent, Hadley Engelhard, previously told Mark Berman of MyFoxHouston.com that he had interest from two other teams, but they were still in contact with the Texans regarding a return.
Dent, 27, is a former third round pick of the Falcons back in 2011. Atlanta traded him to the Texans in return for QB T.J. Yates in June of last year.
In 2014, Dent appeared in 15 games and recorded 38 tackles and a sack for the Texans. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 227 snaps last year, but he does have a solid rating as a pass-rusher.
