The Houston Texans added depth in their secondary on Monday by agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with free agent Marcus Gilchrist.
The story was first reported by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Gilchrist, who visited the Texans last week, was released by the New York Jets on May 4. The latter move came after the Jets used their first two picks of the 2017 draft on safeties.
Gilchrist saw his 2016 season end in Week 14 after sustaining a ruptured patellar tendon. He collected 55 tackles and two interceptions in 13 games.
Gilchrist played in 29 games since signing with the Jets before the 2015 season.
