Liuget is eligible for Houston’s practice squad under the expanded eligibility rules this season. The Texans will need to make a corresponding move to make space for Liuget.
Liuget, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Chargers back in 2011. He finished the fourth year of his six-year, $58.219 million contract that included $30.477 million guaranteed when the Chargers declined his option.
Liuget missed the first four games of the 2018 season, due to a suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drugs policy and was later placed on injured reserve.
After a brief stint with the Raiders, Liuget signed on with the Bills in November of last year and finished out the season in Buffalo.
For his career, Liuget has recorded 287 tackles, 25 sacks, five forced fumbles, six recoveries, a defensive touchdown and 20 passes defended over the course of nine seasons and 118 games.
