The Texans had a need at safety with Tyrann Mathieu signing with the Kansas City Chiefs. They also lost Kareem Jackson and Kevin Johnson from their secondary, making the signing of Gipson even more valuable.
Gipson, 28, spent the first four seasons of his career with Cleveland before heading to Jacksonville for the last few seasons. His play helped the Jaguars become one of the best defenses in the NFL in his time there, as they led the team to the AFC Championship Game in 2017. He was released by the team earlier this offseason.
In his career, he has 394 total tackles, 39 passes defended and 20 interceptions. He made the Pro Bowl in 2014 with the Cleveland Browns.
Bradley Roby was signed to a one-year $10 million deal by the team as well, as first reported by NFL Network’s James Palmer.
