Pleasant, 29, wound up signing on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2012. The Texans cut Pleasant coming out of the preseason before adding him to their practice squad.
Houston elected to re-sign Pleasant to a two-year, $2.15 million contract back in 2016 and he wound up finishing out the deal. New England signed him to a contract back in July but waived him a month later.
In 2017, Pleasant appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and recorded 32 tackles, two sacks, an interception, a forced fumble and three pass defenses.
