The Texans re-signed free-agent S Quintin Demps, the team announced Thursday.
Demps will enter his third season with Houston, having joined the team in December 2010. He began his career with the Eagles in 2008.
Houston had chosen not to make a minimum tender or qualifying offer to Demps as a potential restricted free agent in March, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent March 13.
Last season, Demps played in nine games and recorded 23 tackles, four passes defensed and two interceptions.
