The journey for defensive end Derek Rivers continues.

The Houston Texans signed the former New England Patriots 2017 third-round pick to their practice squad Monday.

Rivers has been with the Texans in some capacity since signing a free agent contract in March 2021. For 2023, Rivers re-signed with the Texans in March and remained a member of the team’s offseason roster.

At the end of preseason, the Texans waived Rivers and signed the Youngstown State product to the practice squad. On Sept. 12, the Texans signed Rivers to the active roster, but released the defensive end the day before the Week 2 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.
