Defensive back T.J. Green is signing with the Texans' practice squad on Tuesday after visiting and working out for them, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.
Green (6-foot-3, 215 pounds) is a former Indianapolis Colts second-round draft pick from Clemson where he switched from wide receiver to the secondary. He has run the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds.
Green has also played for the Atlanta Falcons, New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons.
He has played in 40 games with a dozen starts and has 102 career tackles, five for losses, including 12 tackles this year in six games and one start for Atlanta.
The Texans worked out Green and offensive guard Zach Bailey (6-foot-5, 299 pounds), who has previous stints with the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers after going undrafted out of South Carolina.
