Texans Worked Out 3 Offensive Linemen Including Andrew Gardner & Josh Walker


Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Texans brought in three offensive linemen for workouts on Wednesday including Andrew Gardner, Jeff Adams and Josh Walker.

Houston ultimately elected to re-sign Adams to their roster and place RT Derek Newton on injured reserve.

Walker, 25, wound up signing on with the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee State back in May of 2014. He lasted just a few months in Indianapolis before he was waived and later signed to the Packers’ practice squad.

Green Bay brought Walker back on a future/reserve contract last year but he was unfortunately among their roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

In 2015, Walker appeared in 13 games for the Packers.

Gardner, 30, is a former sixth-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2009. He spent just over a year in Miami before bouncing around with a number of teams including the Ravens, Vikings, Bengals and Texans before eventually signing on with the Eagles in 2014.

Gardner agreed to take a pay cut from the Eagles while he was in the second year of his four-year, $5.495 million contract and would have made a base salary of $1,183,333 for the 2016 season.

Unfortunately, Gardner was among Philadelphia’s roster cuts┬áduring the final week of the preseason.

In 2015, Gardner appeared in three games for the Eagles before he was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a foot injury.
