Eddie Pleasant is the front-runner for the Texans' open strong safety job.
Dre Hal started the first preseason game, but Pleasant has opened up each of the last two. A box safety who should be an asset in the run game, Pleasant is a better like-for-like replacement for D.J. Swearinger than Hal. He should open the season in the starting lineup. Thu, Sep 3, 2015 08:16:00 AM

Eddie Pleasant has been working as the first-team strong safety at Texans OTAs.

A spot opened at that position when the Texans cut D.J. Swearinger last month. Pleasant has played a combined 219 snaps since entering the league in 2012. Houston's alternatives at strong safety include Stevie Brown and Terrance Parks. Pleasant is a squatty 5-foot-10, 211-pound box safety out of Oregon.
