The Jets have already made a number of moves this offseason to address their offensive line, and now a former member of the line is on the move.
According to a report from Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, former Jets guard/tackle Brent Qvale has reached an agreement with the Houston Texans.
Qvale went undrafted out of Nebraska in 2014, and made his way to the Jets on a try-out basis. The Jets thought enough of him to add him to their practice squad for the 2014 season. Qvale then made the 53-man roster coming out of the 2015 preseason, and went on to play 63 games for the Jets over the next five seasons.
This past September, Qvale was placed on Injured Reserve in early September with a knee injury, but he was able to return for the team's final three games of the season. In the regular season finale against Buffalo, he started the game at left guard and played all 67 offensive snaps for Gang Green.
The Jets recently signed tackle George Fant and center Connor McGovern, while bringing back guard Alex Lewis. All of those moves likely gave the Jets some room to move on from the 6-foot-7, 315-pound lineman, who now has found a new home in Houston.
