The Texans signed safety Grayland Arnold and defensive end Ron'Dell Carter through the 2022 season, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.
Both signed identical contracts.
They received $10,000 signing bonus, $10,000 workout bonuses to be earned in 2022 and $895,000 base salaries.
A former Philadelphia Eagles safety, Arnold has also played nickel corner.
As a rookie, the former undrafted free agent from Baylor played in six games and recorded 10 tackles and one pass deflection.
A native of Beaumont, Arnold (5-foot-10, 187 pounds), was a two-time all-state basketball player and an all-state cornerback and an all-district quarterback and wide receiver at Kountze High School.
At Baylor, he had six interceptions in 2019 to rank second in the Big 12 Conference and returned one punt for a touchdown. He was named second-team All-Big 12. He declared early for the draft after that season, finishing his career with 107 tackles, seven interceptions and 7 1/2 tackles for losses.
Arnold's sister, Gabriell Mattox, played basketball at Texas.
Carter is a former Dallas Cowboys undrafted free agent from James Madison University.
Signed off the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad, Carter has also played for the Indianapolis Colts.
Carter made his Texans debut in a 41-29 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.
A Rutgers transfer, Arnold had 66 tackles, 27 for losses, 12 sacks, 13 quarterback hurries and one forced fumble.
