Kayvon Webster and the Houston Texans Agree to a One-Year Deal
Patrick D. Starr
The Houston Texans will be signing free agent cornerback Kayvon Webster according to a source. It will be a one-year deal worth $2 million for the veteran cornerback and a much-needed boost to the depth of the Texans cornerback group. Webster is coming off an achilles injury he suffered last season but after a workout Sunday morning, the Texans were comfortable moving forward adding him to the roster.
This is little surprise the Texans are looking for cornerback help with the lack of consistency behind their top three options in Johnathan Joseph, Kevin Johnson, and Aaron Colvin. Johnson Bademosi is more of a special teams contributor while Dee Virgin and Bryce Jones have been an inconsistent during the preseason. Drafted rookie Jermaine Kelly Jr. has yet to start practicing this preseason due to an undisclosed injury.
Webster was drafted in the 3rd round by the Broncos in the 2013 NFL Draft. After spending four seasons with the Broncos, Webster appeared in 11 games (11 starts) with the Rams last season producing 38 total tackles, 7 pass deflections, and an interception. Webster is entering his 5th season in the NFL after spending time with the Denver Broncos and the 2017 season with the Los Angeles Rams. Webster will also be traveling to meet with the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions.
