Good old Wade Phillips and Bradie James are now reunited in Houston, read here.
Former Dallas Cowboys inside linebacker Bradie James has signed with the Houston Texans, according to a source.
James, a 2005 fourth-round draft pick out of LSU, led the Cowboys in tackles for six consecutive seasons. But his playing time reduced last year with the emergence of second-year linebacker Sean Lee.
When the 2011 season ended, the Cowboys decided to get younger at linebacker and now project Bruce Carter, or possibly Dan Connor, as a starter alongside Lee in the 3-4 defensive scheme.
James finished with just 44 tackles last season, marking the first time he didn’t have at least 100 tackles since 2005.
James re-joins defensive coordinator Wade Phillips with the Texans, whom he played for in Dallas for four seasons. During that time, James picked up 448 total tackles and 13 sacks.
His best season came in 2008, where he produced a career-high eight sacks and three forced fumbles and garnered Pro Bowl consideration.
Bradie James was a solid fourth round draft pick and the Cowboys got a lot of effort and tackles from James over his career in Dallas.
Thanks for coming to work 24/7/365 Bradie!
