Tony Bergstrom, Texans Agree To Terms

Former Raiders reserve Tony Bergstrom looks to get a chance at replacing Ben Jones as the Texans’ center, agreeing to terms with Houston, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports (on Twitter).

Bergstrom’s agreement with the Texans is for two years, according to the Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson (via Twitter).

Houston’s been incredibly active in attempting to transform its offense, signing Brock Osweiler and Lamar Miller. But the Texans also lost Jones and guard Brandon Brooks today, when Jones reached an agreement with the Titans and Brooks opted to join the Eagles.

A third-round pick of the Raiders’ in 2012, Bergstrom’s served as line depth for the most part during his career. Bergstrom’s┬ástarted four games, including three last season when he filled in for the injured Rodney Hudson. He also has played guard, which could be important given the Texans’ need at that position after Brooks defected to Philadelphia.

Despite entering only his fifth season, Bergstrom will turn 30 before his first prospective regular-season game with the Texans.
