The Houston Texans announced on Monday that they have brought back defensive end Keith Browner Jr. and offensive tackle Nick Mondek. Both will be added to the practice squad but we will have to wait word on who the Texans released to bring back both players.
Browner and Mondek spent time with the Texans during training camp and preseason but never really stood out to garner any real notice.
Browner played defensive end and stayed with the team until the final cuts were made. He was a defensive end for the California Golden Bears and went undrafted in the 2011 NFL draft and measures in at 6-4, 279 lbs.
Mondek was drafted in the 6th round (195th overall) in the 2012 NFL draft from Purdue and considered a project at the tackle position at 6-6, 304 lbs. He started with the Boilermakers at defensive end but moved over to the offensive line late in his college career. Mondek was released during the first round of cuts which was a disappointment with him being a draft pick this season. Since being released from the Texans, he has spent time on the Oakland Raiders' practice squad.
One move to clear up room, the Texans have waived Lamar Divens who was brought in prior to the bye week to fill a spot on the practice squad. Also, the Texans have waived inside linebacker Cameron Collins to make the move complete.
