The Houston Texans have signed former Miami Dolphins Safety Chris Clemons to a multi-year contract.

Announced on Friday, the deal will see Clemons sign with the Texans for 2 years in a deal worth $2.7 million.

Clemons, 28 has played 72 career games for the Dolphins with 48 starts and has been one of the bigger named Safetys in this years free agency.

Clemons spent five years with the Dolphins but became an unrestricted free agent earlier this off-season after amassing four interceptions for 29 yards during his Miami days.

He is now the second veteran safety signed by the Texans this off-season after Kendrick Lewis was added to the roster last week.

He joins a team with five options at Safety including Clemons, Lewis, 2013 second-round draft pick D.J. Swearinger, Shiloh Keo and the name with his future in doubt Danieal Manning.

Manning was offered a deal remarkably similar to the one Clemons has now signed and it seems to indicate that Manning's Texans career could be over.
