Breaking: Houston Texans confirms the signing of the 30-year-old star after Jets release…

The Houston Texans have bolstered their secondary depth by signing Adrian Amos, who was recently released by the New York Jets. The 30-year-old safety had a brief stint with the Jets, featuring in 11 games but starting in only 3. During his time with the Jets, Amos accumulated 23 tackles and deflected one pass this season before being waived.

The timing of Amos’s addition is opportune for the Texans, who are currently in the playoff hunt and seeking additional support in the secondary. Amos’s familiarity with the Jets’ defensive strategies could provide valuable insights for the Texans as they prepare for their Week 14 clash against the Jets.

Having played for the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers in four seasons before his brief tenure with the Jets, Amos brings veteran experience to his fourth NFL team. With 10 career interceptions and previous recognition as a Pro Football Focus first-team safety in 2017 and 2020, Amos adds a seasoned presence to the Texans’ defense.

Amos’s playoff experience with the Packers is considered an asset for the young Texans defense, aiming to secure a postseason berth with the contributions of rookies CJ Stroud and Will Anderson Jr. As Amos faces his former team in Week 14, it remains to be seen how much playing time he will have with limited preparation. However, given the circumstances and the potential impact he could make against his former team, Amos taking the field would not be surprising.
