The Houston Texans are beefing up their defensive tackle depth by singing former Las Vegas Raiders defensive tackle P.J. Hall.

Hall’s representation, Enter Sports Management, announced the potential deal on Twitter Thursday.

The Minnesota Vikings attempted to trade for the 6-1, 308-pound defensive lineman from Sam Houston State, but Hall failed his physical. As a result, he reverted back to the rights of the Raiders. Las Vegas waived the Seguin, Texas, native.

Houston claimed Hall off waivers. The Texans are seeking depth along their interior defensive line with tackle Eddie Vanderdoes opting out of the 2020 season.

The 2018 second-round pick played 30 games for the Raiders, starting in 18 of them. Hall collected 48 tackles, eight tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, two pass breakups, and seven quarterback hits.

The Texans are expected to make a corresponding move as the signing of Hall would put them at 81 players, just one over the roster limit.
