The Texans are going to work out former New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills veteran offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.
Waddle, 30, tore his quadriceps in 2019 and was placed on injured reserve. He missed the 2020 season while recovering from his injury suffered last season with the Bills when he was carted off the field during a training camp scrimmage.
A former All-Big 12 selection from Texas Tech, Waddle is a Columbus, Texas native who has started 31 of 61 career games played.
Waddle is a two-time Super Bowl champion.
In 2017, he started four games at right tackle when Marcus Cannon, who's now with the Texans, got hurt. He started three of 16 games in 2018 with the Patriots as he stepped in again for Cannon and earned his second Super Bowl ring.
