Default Player signing news coming ASAP - Texans sign Demps

on www.chron.com

McClain is on 610 saying that he will release the information as soon as the story appears at the Chronicle website.

He also said that it is a veteran safety.

Texans sign Demps to provide safety depth


By MEGAN MANFULL
Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle


The Texans have agreed to a deal with veteran safety Will Demps, giving them a fourth free safety heading into their game against the Carolina Panthers this week.

Demps, 27, will help fill the void left by Jason Simmons, who tore his left patellar tendon in the season opener.

Demps has played in 73 games over the past five seasons. He had 100 tackles in 16 games for the New York Giants last season. He also had one forced fumble and two interceptions. A number of teams had been trying to acquire him in recent days.

Demps will be playing behind C.C. Brown, Von Hutchins and Michael Boulware, who was acquired just last week.

Demps has worked his way up throughout his whole career. He was a walk-on at San Diego State and became a two-time all-Mountain West first-team selection. He was then passed over in the NFL draft and signed with the Ravens as a free agent. He was so impressive during his first camp, however, that he played in 14 games with 10 starts as a rookie.

In March 2006, Demps reportedly signed a five-year, $12 million contract as a free agent with the Giants. He struggled last season as the starter, however, and eventually lost his job to James Butler. Demps was placed on injured reserve with a dislocated right elbow when the rosters were cut to 53 on September 1. He later reached an injury settlement with the team and is expected to join the Texans on the practice field tomorrow.

Not exactly thrilled by Demps but that is what is to be expected with the players available.

I'm surprised they signed somebody coming off an injury settlement (dislocated elbow...ouch!), espically when there were several safeties available. Hopefully the doctors gave him a clean bill of health.

He's a pretty good player isn't he? At least average? From what I know, I am shocked he is a street FA at this point. Better than any street FA I thought we could get. I see Demps starting at FS and Boulware at SS before the end of the month. Big upgrades coming at both positions soon!

According to reports 4 teams including the Texans lost safties this weekend and 3 other teams were trying to sign Demps. I hope the elbow is healthy!

Demps is an average player and that is being a bit generous. The good thing is that it is most likely a short term contract for little money.

I find that to be highly unlikely....unfortunantly. We will probably see CC and Boulware(for reasons unknown to the fans of course)

According to John McClain, not only is his elbow ok but he will be ready to play this weekend. (I think, special teams)

I don't know I wouldn't mind a tandem of Hutchins and Boulware.

You don't think Demps is better than CC Brown? Brown has to be the worst starting FS in the nfl. Even if Demps is slightly under avg as a starter, to me that's still a good upgrade.

No, I absolutely agree with you. I think that Von Hutchins is better than CC, but our coaches apparently don't because they keep running his sorry rear end out there. I can't stand CC at the FS position. If he is even on the field it needs to be at SS behind Boulware.

I think y'all should lighten up on C.C...

The guy isn't a bad football player...No he isn't great or even real good...

But he's not terrible...

He's playing out of position and he has done an o.k job...
