The Houston Texans worked out a number of defensive players on Tuesday, and the most prominent name on the list was former New York Jets first-round pick Vernon Gholston.
Gholston, the sixth pick in the 2008 draft out of Ohio State, was one of six defensive players the Texans took a look at, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Gholston was released by the Jetsin March after not recording any sacks in his three seasons with the club.
Many believed Gholston was miscast in the Jets' 3-4 scheme, and he signed with the Chicago Bears, who play a 4-3, for training camp, but was let go there as well, not even making it to final cuts.
In addition to Gholston, the Texans worked out defensive end Keyunta Dawson and linebackers Antwan Applewhite, Alex Hall, David Vobora and Cyril Obiozor.
