The Texans are signing veteran fullback Andy Janovich to a one-year contract, according to a league source
Janovich was traded to the Browns from the Denver Broncos two seasons ago in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick.
He played in 13 games last season and rushed for one touchdown. He caught three passes for nine yards.
He's a former Broncos sixth-round draft pick. He signed a three-year, $5.7 million extension in the final year of his rookie contract in Denver before joining the Browns.
The Texans also cut linebacker Josh Watson, per a league source.
They officially processed deals for quarterback Kyle Allen, running back Dare Ogunbowale, offensive guard A.J. Cann, defensive end Ogbo Okoronkwo, center Scott Quessenberry and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin. Offensive guard Jake Eldrenkamp and linebacker Connor Strachan cleared waivers and are now unrestricted free agents.
