  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Re-signs with Houston

    The Texans re-signed Thomas on a one-year, $3 million deal Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Thomas appeared in just 10 games last season, spending the first seven weeks on IR with a quadriceps injury. The veteran corner finished the season with 41 tackles (23 solo), one pass defensed and two forced fumbles. Thomas will likely find himself in a rotational role once again heading into the 2023 campaign.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Restored to active roster

    Thomas (quadriceps) was activated to the Texans' 53-man roster Thursday.

    Thomas spent the first seven weeks of the season on Houston's IR with a quadriceps injury before being designated to return to practice last Wednesday. Now, the second-year cornerback will be available to suit up for the first heading into Thursday's game against the Eagles. Thomas played 618 defensive snaps and collected 86 tackles, four passes defended and two interceptions over 17 games with the Texans last season, and he could play a prominent reserve role if Desmond King (knee) is held out against Philadelphia.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Returns to practice

    Thomas (quadriceps) has been designated to return from injured reserve and is back at practice Wednesday.

    Thomas has returned to practice following the quadriceps injury he suffered in August, and the team will now have 21 days to either add him to the active roster or leave him on IR the rest of the season. The 26-year-old is expected to serve as an option at nickelback on defensive packages and operate as a special-teams ace when healthy.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Shifted to IR

    Thomas (quadriceps) was placed on the Texans' injured reserve Thursday.

    Thomas has been sidelined indefinitely with a strained quadriceps since Aug. 17, and he will now be forced to remain out through at least the first four games of the regular season. The 26-year-old cornerback recorded 86 tackles, four passes defended and two interceptions over 17 games with Houston last year, and he is likely expected to play a major role once again when healthy in 2022. Until Thomas returns, Desmond King and Isaac Yiadom should see increased usage in the Texans' secondary.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Out indefinitely with pulled quad

    Thomas pulled his quadriceps and is out indefinitely, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    After solidifying himself as a special-teams ace early in his career, Thomas signed with the Texans last year and served as the team's nickelback, totaling a career-high 86 tackles and two interceptions. His absence will likely heat up competition in Houston's secondary, which features plenty of unproven talent.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Has strong first season in Houston

    Thomas recorded seven tackles and a quarterback hit in the 28-25 loss to Tennessee in Week 18.

    The Texans got good value from the two-year contract Thomas signed prior to the season. He played all 17 games and finished fourth on the team with 86 tackles. The 25-year-old cornerback added four passes defensed, two interceptions -- one returned for a touchdown -- and a forced fumble. He was one of several free-agent signings that panned out for Houston. Thomas, who primarily played slot corner, will return in 2022.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Finishes off Chargers

    Thomas had a 48-yard interception return for a touchdown in Sunday's 41-29 win over the Chargers.

    The Chargers and quarterback Justin Herbert were down by nine with under two minutes left and attempting to get a score-onside kick recovery-score sequence to save their flagging playoff hopes when Thomas registered the first pick-six of his career. It was the second interception of the season for Thomas, who has emerged with a significant role in the Texans' secondary.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: First career INT

    Thomas totaled four tackles (three solo) along with one interception in the 21-14 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

    Thomas recorded his first career interception, as he picked off Zach Wilson late in the first quarter, setting up a Texans touchdown. Despite the 25-year-old's good performance Sunday, he should not be rostered in any IDP leagues due to minimal playing time and production.

  • Texans' Tavierre Thomas: Chooses Texans

    Thomas agreed Wednesday with the Texans on a two-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Thomas spent the last three seasons in Cleveland but never made a true impact until injuries piled up in the team's secondary last season. The 25-year-old recorded 30 tackles, a sack and a forced fumble across 203 defensive snaps in 2020. The Texans will likely rely on Thomas mostly as a special-teams contributor during the upcoming campaign.

  • Browns' Tavierre Thomas: Will hit open market

    The Browns don't plan to tender Thomas, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Thomas was a member of the Browns for three seasons, with the final campaign his most productive. The 24-year-old recorded a career-high 30 tackles and his first forced fumble across 16 games in 2020 while serving as the No. 3 cornerback after primarily playing on special teams in his first pair of campaigns. It appears Thomas will now aim to play a similar role elsewhere in the league.

  • Browns' Tavierre Thomas: Handling kick returns

    Thomas returned two kickoffs for 40 yards in Sunday's 19-16 win over Buffalo.

    Thomas, who has yet to take a snap on defense, has been a staple on special teams but not as a returner. He's now handled Cleveland's kick-return duties the last two weeks, taking over for Dontrell Hilliard, who remains the team's primary punt returner. Thomas has averaged 24.3 yards on four returns.
