Despite being a frequent starter, veteran offensive lineman Nick Easton is a street free agent for the second time. The former Vikings and Saints blocker continues to weigh his options, but he may have an option of signing with the Texans.
The rebuilding team has been busy this offseason, and Easton received a Texans offer, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press tweets. Easton visited Houston earlier this offseason, and Tomasson notes the team’s proposal is reasonable. Easton was previously attached to a four-year, $22.5MM Saints deal, but they released him in February.
Interest came from a few teams. At least four franchises reached out to the interior lineman, including the Bengals, whom Easton met with in late March.
