It looks as if the Houston Texans have a new wide reciever in the fold, as Adam Schefter of NFL Network is reporting that the team has signed free-agent receiver Bethel Johnson to a one-year deal. Johnson will help out a wide out core that released vet Eric Moulds in the offseason, and he could compete with Kevin Walter for a starting job opposite Pro Bowler Andre Johnson. Johnson was with two teams last season, the Saints and the Vikings, and then this offseason was with Philly before being let go in March.
Last season was a rocky one for Johnson, as he was traded from the Pats to the Saints, then went to the Vikings, where he caught 9 passes for 156 yards. After not being resigned by the Vikings, he went to Philly, but his time with the Eagles was short. Johnson was a second-round pick of the Patriots back in 2003 out of Texas A&M. If he can show some potential, he should fit in nicely with the Texans, who were even giving long time wide out Keenan McCardell a look recently at coming in and helping the reciever core.
