EJ Gaines working out for Houston Texans

EJ Gaines hit

Shortly after losing Phillip Gaines for the season, the Houston Texans sent a third-round pick to the Oakland Raiders in exchange for Gareon Conley. However, they may not be done addressing the cornerback position just yet.

On Tuesday — the typical day for workouts across the league — the Texans hosted former Rams sixth-round pick EJ Gaines, who is no relation to Phillip, on a private visit, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

After spending 2018 with the Cleveland Browns, Gaines signed with the Buffalo Bills in March, but a core muscle injury landed him on IR in August. He was released with an injury settlement in September and has remained a free agent since.

However, now that Gaines has returned to health, he’s looking to find a new home and Houston could be an ideal fit, especially now that Johnathan Joseph and Bradley Roby are both injured.

In 43 career games (38 starts), Gaines has recorded 198 tackles, four tackles for a loss, 34 passes defensed and four interceptions.
