Texans signed OT Seantrel Henderson to a one-year contract.
The deal is worth "up to" $4 million. A mega-recruit in college, Henderson tumbled to the seventh round due to a variety of concerns. He was a starter in 2014-15 before injury and illness issues began to take hold. He served a 10-game suspension in 2017 for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Still somehow only 26, Henderson retains upside, but he's just a flier for a team that has a lot of work to do at tackle. Mar 13 - 5:02 PM

I just kept doing everything that the doctor said, eating right and just moving forward getting back ready to on the field." Now at least near his playing weight, Henderson will battle Jordan Mills for the starting right tackle job.

Bills RT Seantrel Henderson (Crohn's) was activated from the active/NFI list Monday.

Henderson was expected to open the season on the NFI list after losing significant weight while battling Crohn's disease over the offseason. He has apparently put enough weight back on to practice, however, and could possibly push for a return to the starting lineup. Jordan Mills has worked as the first-team right tackle with Henderson sidelined.
