The Texans announced that they have re-signed outside linebacker Ricky Sapp. Financial terms of the contract are not yet known for the restricted free agent.
Sapp, 27, has bounced around a bit since his entry to the league in 2010. After being selected in the fifth round by the Eagles, the Clemson product never saw a game for Philadelphia thanks to knee troubles and was waived in 2011. Following a time with the Jets’ taxi squad, Sapp saw time in nine Texans games in 2013, primarily at linebacker and on special teams. While Sapp has yet to see major success on Sundays, he was a productive defensive lineman at Clemson and was considered one of the very best recruits in the nation coming out of high school.
