The Texans continue to add reinforcements to their offensive line.
They were awarded offensive tackle Geron Christian off waivers from the Washington Football Team, according to his agent, Vince Taylor, of Elite Loyalty Sports.
The Texans acquire his $3.74 million rookie contract
Christian is a 2018 third-round draft pick from Louisville who was drafted 74th overall.
He played in 24 career games with eight career starts for Washington, starting six games last season before he injured his knee.
Christian (6-foot-6, 315 pounds) started 39 games for Louisville before declaring early for the NFL draft.
Christian tore his medial collateral ligament as a rookie and was placed on injured reserve.
Christian has run the 40-yard dash in 5.33 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times.
The Texans cut center-guard Cohl Cabell who was signed after the season to a reserve future deal.
