Ejiofor, 26, was drafted by the Texans in the sixth round out of Wake Forest in 2018. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year deal worth $2.6 million.
Ejiofor was placed on injured reserve last year after he suffered a torn Achilles and missed the entire 2019 season. Houston once again placed him on injured reserve last year with a torn ACL.
In 2018, Ejiofor appeared in 12 games for the Texans and recorded eight total tackles, one sack, one fumble recovery, and two pass defenses.
