The Houston Texans have are beginning to stash the roster full of guys with New England Patriots ties.

The club signed former Patriots tight end Paul Quessenberry on Wednesday. The agreement will be processed in full when the new league year kicks off in mid-March.

Quessenberry spent time on the Patriots’ practice squad until mid-October when he was released. The Patriots originally signed Quessenberry in August of 2020 after he served five years in the Marine Corps. The 6-2, 250-pound ball player played his college ball for the Navy Midshipmen in Annapolis, Maryland.

The signing is obviously one that has new general manager Nick Caserio’s fingerprints on it as he was the director of player personnel for New England until this January. Quessenberry also helps the Texans add a body at the position that needs some answers as Pharaoh Brown’s contract has expired and former 2019 third-round pick Kahale Warring still has yet to realize his potential.

The new tight end is the brother of former Texans offensive lineman and cancer survivor, David Quessenberry.
