According to, the Houston Texans could be looking to add a wide receiver to their roster and one of them might be a former New Orleans Saints wide receiver.

Adrian Arrington was among several in attendance to workout for the Texans that also included Deon Butler and Jordan Shipley.  So far no word has come down on if the Texans signed anyone yet.

Arrington was a seventh round draft pick in 2008 for the Saints and was expected to be similar to Marques Colston in that he was a late round draft pick with high potential.

However, injuries and a crowded position derailed Arrington every season and he spent more time on the practice squad than he did on the actual roster.  Every year he was poised to have a great season but never happened.

He was doing exceptionally well during training camp this season but suffered a knee injury that required surgery.  He never snapped back from it and was released before the regular season.  For his career he has 9 receptions for 110 yards.
