Cornerback Phillip Gaines is ready to give it another go with the Houston Texans.
Gaines, who began the 2019 season on the team's active roster, agreed to a one-year deal with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported on Saturday.
Wilson posted on Twitter that Gaines' deal is for the veteran minimum, per a league source.
Gaines' expected return comes after the team parted ways with cornerback Johnathan Joseph on Wednesday. The Texans released a statement thanking Joseph for his contributions to the franchise and wishing him well in free agency, saying the two sides "mutually agreed that he will enter free agency."
Gaines signed with the Texans in September after being released by the Cleveland Browns with an injury settlement. The 28-year-old recorded 13 tackles in six games before landing on injured reserve with an ankle injury.
Gaines has collected 152 tackles and one interception in 58 career games with the Kansas City Chiefs (2014-17), Buffalo Bills (2018), Browns (2018) and Texans (2019).
