Texans Sign C Erik Austell, Waive G Jake Simonich

The Houston Texans announced Friday that they’ve signed C Erik Austell and waived G Jake Simonich.

Austell, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Charleston Southern but was a priority rookie signing for the Broncos. He actually converted to offensive line after his redshirt freshman season.

The Broncos cut Austell loose a few days ago.

In total, Austell started 39 games during his college career and was a first-team All-Big South and second-team FCS All-America as a senior.
