Aaron Wilson of Profootball.scout.com reports the Texans tried out former 49ers first-round defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer, according to a league source. Balmer has previously tried out for the Bengals this season.
Balmer has spent time this season with the Seahawks and the Panthers since being released by the 49ers. The Seahawks acquired Balmer via a trade in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick last year and played in every game. He started 11 games, recording a career-high 43 tackles.
