Texans Tried Out Safeties T.J. Green & Jack Tocho


According to Howard Balzer, the Houston Texans brought in free agent safeties T.J. Green and Jack Tocho for workouts on Wednesday.

Green, 23, is a former second-round pick of the Colts back in 2016. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $4.16 million contract that included $1.87 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $828,840 and $1.01 million over the next two years.

The Colts waived Green with an injury designation coming out of the preseason and he later reverted to their injured reserve list. Green was eventually waived with an injury settlement.

In 2017, Green appeared in all 16 games for the Colts and recorded 45 tackles, no interceptions and one pass defense.

Tocho, 22, was taken in the seventh-round of this last year’s draft by the Vikings. He signed a four-year, $2.47 million contract with the Vikings but was, unfortunately, cut loose as their trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

The Vikings brought Tocho back on a futures contract this past January, but he was once again released at the start of the regular season. He had a brief stint on the Vikings’ practice squad.

During his college career at North Carolina State, Tocho recorded 122 tackles, one sack, six interceptions, and 26 pass defenses over the course of four years and 45 games.
