The Texans are continuing to seek help at the post, but do not plan to make any move at this time, a source confirmed to ESPN. On Monday, the Texans put safety AJ Moore on reserve after injuring a hamstring against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3.
ESPN’s Dianna Russini reported that the decision not to sign Thomas is not related to COVID-19, but to a decision made by Texans.
Thomas, 31, has been a free agent since being eliminated by the Baltimore Ravens in August after Thomas had an argument on the field with teammate Chuck Clark. The Ravens said they terminated Thomas’ contract for personal conduct that harmed the team. A source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Thomas punched Clark during practice.
The Texans are 0-3 and are just one of three teams without an interception this season. The Texans also rank 29th in opponent QBR (75.6) and have allowed at least 28 points in all three games.
