Texans sign five to reserve/future contracts

Posted by Nick Scurfield on January 4, 2011 – 3:36 pm

The Texans have signed safety Antonio Baker, running back Chris Ogbonnaya, offensive tackle Cole Pemberton, center Cody Wallace and wide receiver Paul Williams to reserve/future contracts.

Each player finished the season on the Texans’ practice squad. Baker and Pemberton were rookies, Ogbonnaya in his second NFL season and Wallace and Williams in their third respective seasons.

The reserve/future designation applies to free agents who sign a new contract between the day after the final weekend of the regular season and the Super Bowl. Reserve/future players are not eligible to sign with any other teams for the subsequent season. Essentially, these five players’ contracts with the Texans had expired, and the Texans re-signed them all to new deals.
