Texans Sign Cato June Posted by Mike Florio on April 4, 2009, 2:19 p.m.

He was dumped by the Bucs as part of a late February purge. And he has remained available ever since.

But he finally has a new home.

Linebacker Cato June, a Tampa Two weakside specialist for his entire career, has agreed to terms with the Texans, according to the Houston Chronicle.

He has signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with a $500,000 signing bonus. The deal can be worth as much as $2 million, with incentives.

June started his career in Indianpolis before joining the Bucs in 2007.

The Texans just signed another LB as well:

Texans agreed to terms with LB Buster Davis on a one-year contract.

Davis has been dropped by three teams in two years since getting taken by the Cardinals in the third-round of the 2007 draft. There's no reason to think Davis will make an impact on his fourth stop.

Guess this means no Brian Cushing for them, since thats what ive been seeing in mock drafts.
These signings show the steroid talks are seriously beginning to affect the draft.

Okoye has receded a bit and the Texans are telling him to step it up. I'm glad we got Landry instead.

I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt that it was a "sophmore slump" if he can perform as a rookie he can certainly perform now in his third year. At this point it isn't a question of can he, but will he? I'm happy with Landry too. :D

Okoye's what? 20 years old? Of course he's going to recede a little bit, he's playing d-line, a position that most guys don't grow into in the league until their 3rd or sometimes 4th years, and he's doing it at an age where his body is still very much in development.

Okoye could still easily be a stud DT in the league and anything he's done to this point is remarkable considering how under developed he really is still. He's still a good 3 to 4 years away from beginning to hit his physical peak and understanding of his motor abilities with his build.

You're right but I'm still glad that we passed on him and took Laron Landry. Even without factoring the loss of Sean Taylor and the addition of Albert Haynesworth, I think we made the right move by passing on Okoye and drafting Landry.
