1:27pm: Potter has officially signed with the Texans, agent Vance Malinovic confirms to Mark Berman of FOX 26 Houston (Twitter link).
12:51pm: The Texans are signing tight end Zach Potter, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, who cites a league source. Terms of the agreement aren’t known, but it figures to be a minimum salary contract with a chance to earn a roster spot for Potter.
Potter played his college ball at Nebraska as a defensive end before spending parts of four NFL season in Jacksonville, where the Jaguars converted him to a tight end. Acting primarily as a blocker and special teams player, Potter has recorded 11 career receptions for 83 yards. After signing with the Rams last May, the 27-year-old didn’t survive the team’s final cuts prior to Week 1, and sat out the 2013 season.
