Reggie Swinton is out to prove himself on and off the football field.

The 30-year-old is fighting to land the return job in his first season with the Houston Texans. In his spare time, he's a rapper, looking to gain acceptance and shake the stigma that athletes can't rap.

"When you're a free agent like myself that's bouncing around you're never comfortable and you always gotta prove something to somebody," Swinton, who is with his third team in five seasons, said after practice Monday. "I know I can play ball ... but it's still no comfort level."

The Texans' return duties are up for grabs after the team cut J.J. Moses in May. He had the job the past two seasons.

There's lots of competition though, with rookie and former track standout Jerome Mathis as well as cornerback Philip Buchanon in the mix.

Wow, we have another James Allen on our hands.

He and Morlon "Ultimate" Greenwood should make a collabo track (head over to www.MorlonGreenwood.com if you don't know what I'm talking about)...

Another thing, if "Swintown" is looking to learn from a fellow rapper, Paul Wall isn't the one to take notes from...
