New Saints quarterback Tom Savage said it was a “no-brainer” to join a team with Sean Payton and Drew Brees – although he said he “loved” his time in Houston and called it an “incredible experience.” “Just, when the contract ends, it ends, and you look for the best opportunity for yourself and the team.” Savage said “for sure” he has looked at the surges of fellow QBs like Case Keenum and Nick Foles later in their careers as inspiration.

The Texans have upgraded on special teams by reaching an agreement with former Patriots cornerback/special teams standout Johnson Bademosi on a two-year, $6.25 million contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Bademosi is the highest-paid special teams player in the NFL but also started three games at CB last season.

The Texans will sign OL Zach Fulton to solidify their offensive line, a source confirmed to ESPN. Fulton played both guard and center last season with the Chiefs, but is expected to play guard for the Texans. Houston's 2017 left guard, Xavier Su'a-Filo, is an unrestricted free agent and is not expected to return.

Even after all the activity of the past two days, there are still some (literally) big free agents out there – offensive and defensive linemen looking for homes. Once OT Nate Solder makes his decision, the offensive line market should get moving. Teams like the Giants and Texans are holding out hope that he will leave New England while the Patriots still hope to keep him. After him, look for guys like Ryan Jensen, Justin Pugh and Cameron Fleming to starting matching up with teams. Top defensive linemen yet to agree to new deals include Sheldon Richardson, Dontari Poe and Ndamukong Suh once he's officially released today by the Dolphins. And of course, this being 2018, be on the lookout for more trades. Interesting day ahead.

The Texans intend to sign OT Seantrel Henderson to a one-year deal worth up to $4 million, ESPN's Dan Graziano confirms. Henderson spent the past four years in Buffalo and should compete for one of the open tackle spots next season. The signing gives Houston depth on the offensive line, but likely won't be the only move the Texans make at that position.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

The Texans intend to sign former Jaguars cornerback Aaron Colvin to a four-year deal, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Colvin is a slot corner and has spent the past four seasons in Jacksonville.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer
