The Houston Texans are expected signing former Las Vegas Raiders LB Denzel Perryman to a one-year contract, as per NFL Network National Insider Ian Rapoport.

Perryman has played in 96 and started in 77 career games for two different franchises since he was drafted in the second round of the 2015 draft by the then-San Diego Chargers.

The 30-year-old Perryman signed an extension with the Chargers in 2019 before signing a two-year, $6 million contract with the Carolina Panthers in 2021. He was traded to the Raiders during training camp.

Perryman earned an invitation to the Pro Bowl games in 2021 after he played and started in 15 games for the Raiders.

Last season, Perryman had 83 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss and two interceptions in 12 games played and 11 starts.
