Poole was initially a Seahawks fourth-round pick in the 2015 draft, but he has yet to play in an NFL game. This year, he signed a futures deal with Miami, but the Dolphins cut him loose in August. Now, he’ll have to look for his fourth NFL team with the hope that the new squad will give him his first taste of live action.
Poole was not necessarily central to the Texans’ plans for this season, but tackle depth is critical as Duane Brown pushes for a new contract. The Texans are also without Derek Newton for the season as he recovers from double patella tears.
