Cardinals claimed OLB Trevardo Williams off waivers from the Texans.

With John Abraham (personal) yet to report to camp, Williams gives the Cardinals depth at outside linebacker. He spent last season on I.R. and was cut by Houston after spending the first week of training camp on active/PUP. A 2013 fourth-round pick, Williams will compete for a spot on the 53-man roster.

Texans waived OLB Trevardo Williams.

The Texans have already cut or placed on injured reserve a whopping six members of their nine-man 2013 draft class. Williams spent his entire rookie season on I.R. and then started this camp on active/PUP before coming off that list Thursday. As a 2013 fourth-round pick with some speed pass-rushing ability, Williams will likely land in another camp before long.

Texans placed OLB Trevardo Williams on injured reserve, ending his season.

It's unclear what Williams' injury is, but his leg got "rolled up" in the preseason finale. The fourth-rounder will spend his rookie year "redshirting" on injured reserve. He was ticketed for special teams in year one.

Texans signed fourth-round OLB Trevardo Williams to a four-year contract.

Williams played with his hand in the ground at UConn and led the Big East with 11.5 sacks as a senior, but he projects much better as an outside 'backer in the Texans' 3-4. After rookie minicamp, coach Gary Kubiak said Williams is "a little ahead of" third-rounder Sam Montgomery for No. 3 rush 'backer duties.

Texans coach Gary Kubiak acknowledged after rookie minicamp that fourth-round OLB Trevardo Williams is "a little ahead of" third-rounder Sam Montgomery.

Montgomery strained his back on the first day of camp, but Williams was a better 3-4 outside linebacker prospect to begin with. Williams has a real chance to be Houston's No. 3 rush 'backer as a rookie, behind Brooks Reed and Whitney Mercilus. "Tremendous speed," Kubiak said of Williams. "He can really run." An explosive if undersized pass rusher, Williams ran 4.57 at the Combine.

Texans selected UConn DE/OLB Trevardo Williams with the No. 124 overall pick.

Williams (6-1, 241) led the Big East with 11.5 sacks as a senior, and graduated as the Huskies' all-time leader (30.5). He added 40.5 career tackles for loss and five forced fumbles. A pure speed rusher, Williams will get swallowed up by run-blocking NFL linemen, but should help on nickel downs and cover kicks on special teams. He ran 4.57 at the Combine with a 1.61 ten-yard split and 10-foot-4 broad jump.
