Safety half Earl Thomas III is said to be on the verge of an agreement with the Houston Texans.
This is what ESPN said on Monday, specifying that the 31-year-old athlete must take a test for COVID-19 before the agreement is reached.
Thomas was released by the Baltimore Ravens last August after he had an argument with teammate Chuck Clark.
The marauder had played only one season with the Maryland team. He had previously played nine campaigns with the Seattle Seahawks, including winning the Super Bowl in 2014.
In 140 games in the NFL, Thomas made 713 tackles, two quarterback sacks and 30 interceptions. He also registered two touchdowns.
The Texans, who are 0-3 in 2020, face the Minnesota Vikings next Sunday.
