Webster, who is recovering from a torn Achilles, has seen his stock rise significantly in recent days. Apart from Houston, he was also scheduled to visit with the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions per Schefter, but he never got the chance as the Texans quickly sealed the deal to acquire his services.
Webster became a regular starter for the first time in his career last season. He started 11 games at cornerback for the Rams, recording 38 tackles and one interception. Unfortunately, the torn Achilles prematurely ended his season and also played a part in his release in April.
Prior to his one season in Los Angeles, Webster had spent the first four years of his career with the Denver Broncos and was part of their Super Bowl-winning team in 2015. He made just two starts in 54 appearances during his time in Denver, picking up one interception and 70 total tackles.
Webster will provide some added depth at cornerback for the Texans, who will have Johnathan Joseph, Kevin Johnson and Aaron Colvin as their top-line guys this season. He also figures to be a contributor on special teams.
