Texans sign DE Anderson, waive DE Denney
The Houston Texans signed defensive end Mark Anderson and waived
defensive end Ryan Denney.
Anderson was cut by Chicago on Tuesday. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound
lineman had 12 sacks as a rookie in 2006, helping the Bears reach
the Super Bowl. He had only nine sacks over the next three seasons
and has none this year.
The Texans signed Denney as a free agent after backup defensive
end Connor Barwin broke his ankle in the season opener. Denney was
inactive for last week’s game against Oakland.
Houston has been looking for a defensive end to complement
All-Pro Mario Williams, who has five of the team’s nine sacks this
