Free agent right tackle Ryan Harris will stay with the Texans. Sources: He signs a 1-year contract with Houston. — Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) April 8, 2013   The Houston Texans have decided to resign offensive tackle Ryan Harris for the 2013 season. Harris was brought in prior to the 2012 season before the season started, after the Denver Broncos cut him to set their final roster. Harris shared snaps with fellow right tackle Derek Newton for majority of the 2012 season, and started 2 of the 16 games he appeared in. At 6-5 and 300 lbs. the 6-year veteran is still only 28 years old and has been slowed by back injuries prior to joining the Texans last season. Drafted in the 2007 NFL Draft in the 3rd round (70th overall) out of Notre Dame, Harris was a staple at right tackle for the Broncos. Harris’ signing will bring back the entire offensive line the Texans had in 2012 and make it appear they are pleased with the direction the offensive line is going. Harris will be competing with Newton to over take the right tackle position for the upcoming season. Newton had off-season knee surgery that he is still recovering from he suffered during the season.
