    They worked him out last week on Tuesday along with Malcolm Sheppard.

    Texans sign McClain and put Keith Browner/Nick Mondek on the PS.

    Sharpton is very close to getting on the field but is not ready to play. Tate still out with a hamstring issue.

    McClain is 6'2, 297 and is pretty explosive. A 3rd round pick out of South Florida, drafted by the Carolina Panthers. Not sure why he was cut.

    We will see what he gives us.

    Terrell McClain - DL - Texans

    Texans signed DT Terrell McClain.

    DE David Hunter (foot) was sent to injured reserve in a corresponding move. The No. 65 pick of the 2011 draft, McClain was waived by the Panthers at final cuts before spending one week on the Patriots' active roster. Abysmal against the run to this point in his young career, McClain might not get many snaps to prove himself in Houston.

    Kubiak: Texans sign d-lineman Terrell McClain to active roster. Add OT Nick Mondek and OLB Keith Browner to practice squad.

    Until Larry Seely confirms this, I won't believe it.

    I'll enjoy seeing him on the bench for the next few weeks. I'm sure he will bring a good presence to the water cooler.

    Exactly doubt he even plays would like to see Sharpton soon though.

    I almost fell out of my seat when I saw we signed Terrel, and then I saw McClain and all was normal again.

    Obviously with Wade Phillips, McClain who has been playing out of position with Panthers, gets his chance to flash as nose tackle in Texan rotation. Good catch to replace Hunter, will have to give 100% effort & buy into coaching/change of scenery but like his chances to address depth issue on interior DL. :)

    Ok I looked up some stuff on him and maybe could be a good guy to sign and see what happens. McClain was an early 3rd round pick (65 overall) in 2011 for the Carolina Panthers. Their defense was really bad last year, 25th overall against the run, and for whatever reason they cut this guy in his second year. He was on IR towards the end of the season with a knee injury. The Patriots had him for only 1 week this year, so he might not be in football shape just yet.

    Some more info on him getting cut:

    http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2012/09/02/3499352/panthers-cut-second-year-defensive.html

    I would also like to point out that one of our posters Beerlover liked him very much as a 4th round prospect going into the 2011 draft. If McClain was cut for "style" reasons as the article above suggests, maybe he will actually help this team at NT. He is only 24 years old, so he certainly hasn't developed completely and there may be more upside to him.

    Agree BL, may not get much time on field but at Nose could work into a good player by next season. Doesn't cost much to give him a look. Not sure if he wants to take beating a Nose goes thru but to play with our line and on a SB candidate team, he should leap for joy (and maybe knock down a pass or two).
