Former Jets Practice Squad Member Signs With Texans
There is a new member to the active roster of the Houston Texans and it is a former member of the New York Jets practice squad. Undrafted twenty six year old rookie Wendall Williams has been signed to the Texans this afternoon, taking the spot of Braxton Miller who has been placed on injured reserve with an injury. Williams was one of the most interesting stories leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft. The NAIA track stand out at Cumberlands ran a 4.19 at a regional combine. That forty time alone stands as one of the fastest forty times recorded at any NFL combine. Williams does have an upstate New York connection. Williams played his high school football at Bishop Ludden high school in Syracuse, New York where he was a part of the 2007 Class C state champions. Williams was also a former member of the Geddes-Westvale Pop Warner football organization in a suburb of Syracuse. I played alongside Wendall's brother Joe in that same organization in the early 2000s. . The Texans host the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday.
