Hamilton, 27, is a former sixth-round pick of the Bengals back 2013. He was, unfortunately, unable to make the team coming out of the preseason during his rookie season but was later signed to the Bengals’ practice squad.
Hamilton had brief stints with the Eagles, Bengals, Dolphins and Panthers before he was signed by the Steelers in 2016. After returning to the Steelers on a future/reserve contract, Pittsburgh waived him at the start of the 2017 season and he later signed on to the Texans’ practice squad.
Houston called him up in November and he finished out the year on their active roster.
Clements, 23, originally signed on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Illinois last year. Minnesota cut him loose as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit and he later signed on to the Texans’ practice squad.
Houston eventually promoted Clements to their active roster before waiving him and re-signing him to their taxi squad.
In 2017, Clements appeared in two games for the Texans and recorded two tackles and a half sack.
During his four-year college career, Clements recorded 99 tackles, 26.5 tackles for a loss, six sacks, three forced fumbles, a recovery and five pass defenses over the course of 37 games.
