The Houston Chronicle is reporting that the Texans will sign former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Bradie James.
James played nine seasons with the Cowboys, three and a half of which were spent under then-head coach Wade Phillips, who now serves as the defensive coordinator for Houston.
A fourth round pick out of LSU in 2003, James led the Cowboys in tackles in five consecutive seasons, from 2005 to 2009. But in 2011, he saw his role greatly reduced--he was actually forced to split snaps with fellow veteran ILB Keith Brooking--as Sean Lee emerged to lead the club in tackles and interceptions.
James finishes his career in Dallas with 744 tackles, 15.5 sacks and two interceptions.
