Houston waived Littleton on Tuesday.

With Denzel Perryman returning from a two-game suspension Monday, the Texans didn't see the use in keeping an extra linebacker around and decided to part ways with Littleton. He's set to become a free agent if he's not claimed by another team during the current waiver period.

Returns to Houston

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-08

The Texans signed Littleton to their active roster from New Orleans' practice squad Wednesday.

Littleton originally signed with the Texans in March, but he was let go in mid-October. Houston re-signed him a week later only to release him again after a few days. Littleton subsequently joined New Orleans' practice squad, but he's now back with the Texans. The veteran linebacker has played in seven total games this year, with most of his work coming on special teams. All 16 of his defensive snaps came in Week 1, when he notched one tackle against Baltimore.

Joins New Orleans' practice squad

The Saints signed Littleton to their practice squad Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Littleton was cut by the Texans on Saturday after being signed to their 53-man roster four days earlier. He played primarily on special teams for Houston and registered one tackle in six games. Littleton will look to get acclimated to the Saints' defensive playbook and prepare for a call-up this season.

Cut again by Houston

The Texans released Littleton on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

The move corresponds with defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway returning from IR. Littleton was signed to the Texans' 53-man roster Tuesday after being let go by the team less than a week earlier. He'll have a chance to explore his options should he clear waivers.

Brought back by Houston

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-24

The Texans re-signed Littleton to the team's 53-man roster Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Houston let go of Littleton last week in order to add Myjai Sanders to its active roster, but it now seems as if the team has found an open spot for the 29-year-old linebacker. Littleton has appeared in 116 games throughout his eight-year NFL career, recording 543 total tackles, 27 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks, along with earning second-team All-Pro honors in 2018.

Let go by Houston

Littleton was released by the Texans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Littleton will now be subject to waivers, but if he goes unclaimed by the rest of the league, Houston is expected to add him to their practice squad. The linebacker's spot on the active roster will be filled by Myjai Sanders, who the team claimed off of waivers from Arizona on Wednesday.

Gets one-year deal with Texans

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-03-21

Littleton is signing a one-year contract worth up to $2.7 million with Houston on Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

Littleton appeared in 15 games with the Panthers last season, recording his lowest tackle total (47) since 2018. The 29-year-old seems likely to handle a similar depth role with Houston in 2023, meaning he would carry minimal fantasy value in IDP formats.
