Owner Bob McNair admitted Thursday the Texans are interested in former Buffalo defensive end Aaron Schobel.
Schobel, who was waived by the Bills on Wednesday, is a free agent who wants to sign with the Texans if he elects to play a 10th season. Other teams are interested in Schobel.
“(General manager) Rick (Smith) is talking with our coaches, and they’re evaluating things and trying to determine exactly what role a player like Aaron would fill,” McNair said. “We all respect him.
“He’s a good player, and I’ve always admired the way he plays the game. He’s certainly played hard every time he’s played against us. He’s got a great reputation around the league.
“I think anybody would be happy to have him.”
