Done Deal: Just In Houston Texans Confirm The Signing Of Another CB

Myles Bryant, a former defensive back for the Patriots, has signed with the Texans.
The Washington native who went undrafted played for New England for four seasons.

After four seasons, Myles Bryant’s tenure with the New England Patriots has come to an end.

The veteran defensive back will be signed by the Houston Texans, as Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 first reported on Monday.

The 26-year-old Bryant came to Foxborough in 2020 as an undrafted rookie. The University of Washington product started his first two NFL seasons on the practice squad but went on to appear in 55 games, including 17 starts. During that time, he racked up 200 tackles, two sacks, three forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and four interceptions.


Bryant, who was a restricted free agent last spring and was paid at the right-of-first-refusal level of $2.627 million, played 74.8 percent of the defensive snaps in 2023. During New England’s 4-13 campaign, that rate was only higher than safety Kyle Dugger and Jabrill Peppers and linebacker Ja’Whaun Bentley. In addition, he managed 20.9 percent of the special teams effort and recorded a career-high 77 tackles.

During his stint, Bryant, who was classified at 5-foot-9 and 192 pounds, lined up in the secondary. Besides playing mostly as a slot cornerback, he also returned 25 punts for 161 yards, with a long of 16.

Bryant has signed a contract with the AFC South team, which is managed by Nick Caserio, the former director of player personnel for the Patriots, after remaining unsigned since the league year opening at 4 p.m. ET on March 13.
