The Texans worked out defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes on Monday at their facilities. Now they have added Vanderdoes to their practice squad on Tuesday.
The Oakland Raiders drafted Vanderdoes in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL Draft out of UCLA. He spent three seasons with the Raiders before being released from the team. In the second finale of the 2017 season, Vanderdoes tore his ACL, which put him on the PUP list entering the 2018 season. He never recovered, and he was never activated from the PUP list ending his 2018 season without seeing any playing time.
Current Texans outside linebacker coach John Pagano was the Raiders defensive coordinator in 2017 when the Raiders drafted Vanderdoes.
