Texans sign rookie free agents Kendall Calhoun, Nick Thurman among many moves

The Texans made a bevy of moves official Monday.

They announced their claim of quarterback Stephen Morris off waivers from the Seahawks.

Houston also signed tackle Kendall Calhoun, a rookie free agent from the University of Cincinnati, and defensive end Nick Thurman, a rookie free agent from the University of Houston.

The Texans waived two players in corresponding moves, cutting first-year receiver Montay Crockett and rookie defensive end Jalen Wilkerson.

Mike Vrabel is as well-suited for coaching as any player I have ever coached, Belichick said in a statement following Vrabel’s retirement in 2011, according to Greg A. Bedard of the Boston Globe. “He has a tremendous feel for people, players, coaches and what his team needs regardless of the situation. He is outstanding in his knowledge of the game, which contributed to his excellence as a player. I have no doubt Mike will develop tough, intelligent, fundamentally sound winners.”

You don’t see that in Scranton, Frazier said. “It’s fun. I’m still kind of in awe. I didn’t have a spring training with these guys, so I didn’t see it in person.”

His spring training concussion was one of the toughest things he’s ever had to deal with in his young life and before Saturday’s game he talked at length about his way-longer-than-expected recovery.

Frazier, 23, also once made it very clear once again that he wants to a Yankee now and forever when he was asked about his name often coming up in trade rumors because the big club is set at all three outfield positions and DH.

I want to be here for the rest of my career, Frazier said with conviction. “This is an amazing place to be right now. I don’t want to be traded. I want to be a Yankee and I want to be a part of this special team for a long time to come.”cardinals_035
