    HOUSTON - The Houston Texans have re-signed veteran left tackle Ephraim Salaam and released safety Brian Russell.

    The Texans added Salaam to the roster as insurance for the offenseive line with left tackle Duane Brown missing the second half of the Texans 16-13 win over the Rams on Sunday because of a sore knee.

    Salaam last played for Houston in 2008.

    I like him and I've always wanted him to retire as a Texan he's just fun to be around and a player who just does his job.

    For the time, I think this was a good safe signing. Anyone know if he can play guard at all?

    Gotta have someone. Our OL is disappearing fast. Good thing it's ALMOST the end of the season. SURELY he can protect or QB for two games!

    Salaam is a good guy and for two games to get us to the end of the year I'm good with it. He's not "the answer" to anything other than that but then nobody really expected him to be.

    Welcome back Ephraim. How many ex-Texans could any of us really say that about with a straight face?

    Von Wafer is a bit more surprising though. He had to buy out his own European contract.

    Von Wafer is coming back to the Rockets? I heard Memphis. With Budinger out for a few weeks Wafer would make sense.

    So what happened to Salaam in Detroit? I thought he had a contract there.

    Anyway, I've never had too much bad to say about Salaam. He's not a bad player for what he is. He's a decent depth guy, and he did a good enough job while he was here, if only he held that role. When he was subbing in with Duane Brown last year, I thought he was serviceable.

    Seriously, if Dale Muphy comments about this I need every single one of you to admit that it's just a big practical joke on him and that there is no way Salaam's back on the team. Trust me, for Ephriam's sake, it's the right thing to do.

    Slow and old can also get you on an NFL roster. Welcome back, Salaam. I'm indifferent to this move. I guess we really needed the body.
