News: Mathews signed with the Texans, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: The defensive lineman, who was selected in the seventh round of the 2010 draft by Indianapolis, will line up at right defensive end in defensive coordinator Romeo Crennell's 3-4 base defense. Mathews becomes the second free-agent lineman signed by the team following the acquisition of nose tackle Jerrell Powe.
Arian Foster - #23 - Running back - 6'1" - 227lbs

News: Foster (back) intends to participate in Texans' OTAs, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Impact: Foster appears to be recovered from back surgery that limited him to just eight games in 2013, and it sounds as if he's healthy enough to join his teammates for offseason workouts that run from May 27 to June 13. Foster claims he has been working out for two months, and that the back injury that limited his effectiveness last year is behind him, meaning he shouldn't be limited in any way for these workouts. The 27-year-old will enter camp as the No. 1 back over the recently-signed Andre Brown, and after being limited to 542 rushing yards on 121 carries in 2013, he'll look to return to the the form that made him a quality back -- in both real and fantasy terms -- from 2010-12.
