The Houston Texans have made their first roster move under new general manager Nick Caserio.

The Texans signed former Northern Illinois guard-tackle Jordan Steckler to a one-year contract, according to his agent Brett Tessler.

Steckler signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2020. Although he didn’t make the team by the end of preseason, the New England Patriots signed Steckler to their practice squad on Oct. 27. At that time, Caserio was the Patriots’ director of player personnel.

The move allows the Texans to add depth to the offensive line while evaluating where they want to go with the position, especially given the underwhelming play of Zach Fulton last year combined with the alleged lack of progress from second-year guard Max Scharping, who was a teammate of Steckler’s at Northern Illinois.
