Antoine Caldwell next in line at right guard

Posted by Nick Scurfield on March 16, 2012 – 5:58 pm

Mike Brisiel, the Texans’ primary starter at right guard since 2008, has signed with the Oakland Raiders. Next in line at the position is Antoine Caldwell, a third-round draft pick out of Alabama in 2009 who has started 13 games in three seasons.

Caldwell (6-3, 311) started seven games in 2010, when Arian Foster led the league in rushing, and three in 2011. He competed with Brisiel for the starting right guard spot in both of the last two training camps.

Caldwell and Brisiel shared playing time in the first half of the 2010 season. Brisiel eventually won the job but suffered a season-ending injury with four games remaining, putting Caldwell back in the lineup. Caldwell was limited in 2011 by a high-ankle sprain suffered in the first preseason game.

At Alabama, Caldwell started 34 games at center, 12 at left guard, one at right guard and one at right tackle. He was a two-time captain for the Crimson Tide and was the first Alabama football player to earn his degree in less than three years.

    …im speechless right now. The Texans let Briesel and Winston go but yet still have Jacoby Jones. Please tell us what the heck your staff is doing!

    very weird how and why they released them. I hope they do have something up there sleaves or there is gonna be alot of pissed off fans. Including me. jacoby should have been cut and play for the arena league or the UFL. He’s in that class of football players.

    Well, o-line just became a priority for the draft. Starting OG or OT just became “needs”, other than #2WR, everything else falls under the category of “wants”.
