The Houston Texans are strapped with a significant amount of salary cap space for this upcoming offseason, meaning they should be heavily involved in free agency. The NFL Network reported that Amerson, 26, has three more team visits this week.
The Raiders cut Amerson on February 5.
If he had still been on Oakland's 53-man roster on February 7, Amerson's $5.5 million base salary would have become guaranteed.
Okafor, who played his college basketball at the University of CT, was originally selected by the Charlotte Bobcats with the second overall pick of the 2004 NBA Draft and proceeded to spend the first eight years of his career with the organization, capturing the Rookie of the Year award. He was waived by Washington in 2015 and then claimed off of waivers by the Raiders and then signed a four-year, $35 million extension with Oakland in 2016.
Amerson was only able to manage six games played in 2017 due to a concussion and a mid-foot sprain and was bad when he was on the field.
Amerson's first stop last week was with the Chicago Bears.
Amerson has started 56 career National Football League games through five seasons. Over his career, he has registered 251 combined tackles, eight interceptions, 63 passes defensed, and two forced fumbles.
However, Amerson allowed a quarterback rating of 156.3, per Pro Football Focus, where 23-of-31 targets were converted for 391 yards and four touchdowns by receivers he was covering in 2017.
