Texans Place CB Gareon Conley & WR Isaiah Coulter On IR, Sign Two

The Houston Texans announced Monday that they’ve placed CB Gareon Conley and WR Isaiah Coulter on injured reserve and signed G/T Brent Qvale and LS Jon Weeks.

Gareon Conley

Conley, 24, is a former first-round pick by the Raiders in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Ohio State. He’s entering the final year of his four-year, $10,467,424 rookie contract and is set to earn a base salary of $1,892,376 in 2020. 

The Raiders traded him to the Texans in exchange for a 2020 third-round pick back in October of last year. Houston declined Conley’s fifth-year option this past April, which would have cost them $10,089,000 for the 2021 season. 

In 2019, Conley appeared in 14 total games for the Raiders and Texans, recording 50 total tackles, no sacks, one interception, and 13 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 55 overall cornerback out of 112 qualifying players. 

Coulter, 21, was a three-year starter at Rhode Island before being selected by the Texans in the fifth round of the draft. He signed a four-year rookie deal worth $3,587,952 that includes a signing bonus of $292,952.

During his three-year career at Rhode Island, Coulter appeared in 34 games and recorded 132 receptions for 1,855 yards (14.1 YPC) and 12 touchdowns.
