Texans Worked Out Three TEs

According to Howard Balzer, the Houston Texans worked out three free-agent tight ends on Wednesday including Jerell AdamsKyle Carter and Will Tye.

Of this group, the Texans signed Adams to their practice squad.

Carter, 25, signed on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State back in 2016. He was among the team’s final roster cuts coming out of the preseason but later signed to the team’s practice squad.

The Vikings elected to cut Carter and were reportedly interested in bringing him back if he cleared waivers after the playoffs. However, the Giants claimed him off Minnesota’s waivers but wound up cutting him loose back in July.

The Seahawks quickly claimed him off waivers but released him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit.

In 2017, Carter appeared in three games for the Vikings but did not record a single statistic.

Tye, 26, wound up signing on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Stony Brook back in 2015. He was unable to make the team coming out of the preseason but was later signed to the team’s practice squad.

Tye spent over two years with the Giants before he was waived at the start of last season and later claimed off of waivers by the Jets. Tye eventually ended up on the Patriots’ practice squad before returning to New England on a futures contract this past February.

Unfortunately, the Patriots waived Tye with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and he later reverted to injured reserve. New England waived him with a settlement soon after.

In 2017, Tye appeared in three games for the Jets and caught four passes for 38 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
