Texans Worked Out 10 Players Including LBs Audie Cole & Jonathan Freeny

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans brought in free agent LB Audie Cole for a workout on Tuesday.

The full list of tryouts includes:

  1. LB Audie Cole
  2. DB Corey White
  3. DB Josh Thornton
  4. LB Josh Mauga
  5. LB Jonathan Freeny   
  6. DB B.W. Webb,
  7. DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste
  8. DB Johnthan Banks
  9. TE Alex Ellis
  10. TE Brian Parker

The Texans could clearly use some inside linebacker help now that Brian Cushing has been suspended 10 games for another PED violation.

Cole, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Vikings back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the Vikings before re-signing to a one-year, $760,000 deal a year ago.

Cole signed a two-year, $2.6 million contract with the Jaguars back in March and was set to make base salaries of $1 million over the next two years when he was released by Jacksonville in August.

The Saints signed Cole to a contract a few weeks ago but he lasted just a few days in New Orleans.

In 2016, Cole appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and recorded 12 tackles.
