The Houston Texans have announced the signing of center, Tyler Horn. Horn is a first year player out of the University of Miami and is 6-4 and 305 lbs.
Horn signed with the Atlanta Falcons after the 2012 NFL draft, but was waived on the final cuts heading in the season. In October, Horn was signed to the Tennessee Titans practice squad and he finished the 2012 season with the Titans.
Horn was a veteran invited to rookie mini camp last weekend and ended up being extended a contract to compete for a spot during training camp. Horn and Deji Karim were both signed by the Texans after impressing the Texans during their tryout. With the signing of the two the Texans waived rookies running back George Winn and offensive tackle Dann O’Neill.
The moves the Texans are at 89 players on their current roster.

In Houston I doubt this man can walk down the street without getting a pat on the back or a request for him and the rest of the Houston Texans to kick some behind next season. Show his face and fans around the country will know he is--one of the fiercest defensive weapons in the NFL today.
Want to see when he didn't look so fierce?
