Bucs re-signed S Troy Nolan.
Tampa waived Nolan last week after signing him in late July. Nolan started seven games for the Texans between 2010-12, and appeared in eight games last season between the Texans, Dolphins, and Bears. Nolan is a long shot for the Bucs' final safety spot, and is essentially a camp body. Sat, Aug 10, 2013 09:21:00 AM

Bucs waived S Troy Nolan and WR Bobby Sewall.

The 26-year-old Nolan lasts just a week on the roster. The Bucs signed WR Chris Denton and LB Marvin Booker in corresponding moves.

Bucs signed S Troy Nolan.

The 2009 seventh-rounder appeared in eight games between the Bears, Dolphins and Texans last season. Nolan made seven starts for Houston between 2010-12. He'll compete for the Bucs' final safety spot and a role on special teams, but is likely just a camp body.
Mon, Jul 29, 2013 09:12:00 AM

Free agent S Troy Nolan worked out for the Browns.

Nolan had stints with the Texans, Dolphins and Bears last season, playing on just 106 defensive snaps. Entering his age-27 season, the former seventh-round pick is mere roster depth.
Tue, Apr 16, 2013 09:22:00 AM

Bears signed S Troy Nolan.

Starting free safety Chris Conte is in doubt for Week 17 due to a hamstring injury and Craig Steltz (pectoral) is on IR. Anthony Walters was forced to fill in opposite Major Wright after Conte went down last week.
Wed, Dec 26, 2012 10:44:00 AM

Texans waived FS Troy Nolan.

The move opened up a roster spot for LB Darryl Sharpton, who was activated from the PUP list. Nolan was the Texans' fifth safety. He recorded nine total tackles in 106 defensive snaps this season.
Sat, Nov 17, 2012 12:04:00 PM

Texans re-signed S Troy Nolan.

Nolan spent 2010 and 2011 with the Texans, appearing in 30 games. He's back thanks to Quintin Demps' forearm fracture.
Tue, Oct 2, 2012 12:57:00 PM

Dolphins claimed S Troy Nolan off waivers from the Texans.

A former seventh-round pick, Nolan appeared in 30 games for the Texans the past two seasons, making 84 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three picks. He could see heavy snaps as the Dolphins revamp their secondary on the fly.
Sat, Sep 1, 2012 03:05:00 PM

Texans S Troy Nolan was forced to take a pay cut from $1.308 million all the way down to $540,000 in order to keep his roster spot.

Nolan did receive a $110,000 "signing" bonus to make up some of the difference, but ultimately the pay cut cost him $658,000. The $540K salary is also not guaranteed, so the Texans could pull the plug on Nolan after training camp if he's outplayed by Torri Williams or Quintin Demps. Nolan held up well in three spot starts last season, but cost too much for a clear-cut backup.

The Texans are expected to stage a camp competition between Troy Nolan and Dominique Barber to start at strong safety.

All signs point to CB Glover Quin sliding to free safety, with Nolan or Barber playing opposite him and Houston adding a starter across from CB Kareem Jackson in free agency or early in the draft. Nolan has better ball skills and more upside in coverage, so we'd give him the edge over Barber going in.
Tue, Mar 8, 2011 11:13:00 PM

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said that FS Troy Nolan is "going to get a lot more playing time" after intercepting two passes in Week 4.

They were the Texans' first two interceptions of the season. Kubiak has been singing Nolan's praises since training camp, and the former seventh-round pick has earned some extra snaps. Kubiak did also note that he hopes to have starter Eugene Wilson back in Week 5.
Tue, Oct 5, 2010 11:21:00 AM

When asked to identify one young player that's stood out during training camp, coach Gary Kubiak said FS Troy Nolan without hesitation.

A 2009 seventh-round pick, Nolan spent last year on IR but has earned the backup job behind Eugene Wilson. Said defensive coordinator Frank Bush, "He's been impressive, especially considering he was out last year. He learns fast. He hits people. He makes plays. He's looking like an NFL safety."
Tue, Aug 31, 2010 10:33:00 AM

Texans waived/injured S Troy Nolan.

Nolan, a seventh-round pick from Arizona State, broke his hand in Saturday's exhibition opener. He hadn't made a case for playing time pre-injury.
Tue, Aug 18, 2009 03:32:00 PM

Texans S Troy Nolan is expected to undergo surgery for a broken hand Monday.

The rookie seventh-rounder out of Arizona State suffered the injury during Saturday's game. The team will set a timetable for his return after the surgery.
Mon, Aug 17, 2009 08:56:00 AM

Texans signed seventh-round S Troy Nolan to a multi-year contract.

Nolan is a so-so athlete (31.5" vertical, 4.62 forty), but picked off 10 passes in his last two years at Arizona State, returning four for pick sixes and scoring once on a fumble recovery. He'll try to make the Texans as a gunner.
