RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-08

The Giants signed Houston to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Houston had an excellent senior season for Western Illinois in 2022, recording 1,015 yards and six touchdowns on 90 catches and adding 63 yards and two scores on five carries. The wideout's lone NFL regular-season action to date came in 2022, when he caught two passes on six targets for 16 yards over two games with Dallas. Houston spent most of last season on the Giants' practice squad and was elevated in Week 17 but didn't see any action. With the reserve/future contract, he'll have a chance to compete for a roster spot during training camp this summer.

Returns to practice squad

The Giants reverted Houston to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

Houston got his first elevation of the season ahead of Sunday's loss to the Rams, but he ended up as an inactive for the contest. The Giants have a healthy wide-receiver corps heading into their regular-season finale, so Houston may not be among the team's priorities for another elevation.

Active roster bound

The Giants elevated Houston to their active roster Saturday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

The 24-year-old wideout's elevation could be an indication that Wan'Dale Robinson (quadriceps, questionable) is leaning towards not suiting up Sunday. Houston most recently appeared in an NFL game in 2022 with the Cowboys, and he'll likely get the chance to contribute to the Giants' special teams unit in Week 17.

Lands on New York's practice squad

Houston was added to the Giants' practice squad Thursday, Michael Elsen of the team's official site reports.

Houston was waived by the Cowboys on Tuesday after spending most of the 2022 season on Dallas' practice squad. He'll work to acclimate himself to the Giants' playbook as he awaits an opportunity to be moved up to the team's active roster.

Doesn't make final cut

Houston has been waived by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Houston spent the majority of last season on Dallas' practice squad and there's a good chance the 24-year-old returns there again. The Western Illinois product did suit up twice in 2022 for the team though, recording two catches on six targets for 16 yards.

Sticks with Dallas

Dallas signed Houston to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Todd Archer of reports.

Houston signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Western Illinois last spring and made Dallas' initial 53-man roster at the conclusion of the preseason. He caught two of five targets for 16 yards in a Week 1 loss to Tampa Bay but failed to secure his lone target in Week 2 and was then waived ahead of Michael Gallup's (ankle) season debut. After clearing waivers, Houston latched on with the Cowboys' practice squad and spent the remainder of the campaign there. With his new deal, Houston will be able to stick around the organization and look to stake a more permanent claim to a roster spot in 2023.
