    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>The <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=hou" target="_new">Houston Texans</a> have signed free-agent linebacker <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10513" target="_new">Buster Davis</a>, who was recently released by Indianapolis, to a one-year deal worth $445,000.</p> <p>Davis played in six games for the Colts last season, starting three at middle linebacker late in the year when <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4811" target="_new">Gary Brackett</a> was injured. He made 26 tackles.</p> <p>The Colts claimed Davis off waivers from Detroit before the 2008 season started. He was originally a third-round pick out of Florida State by the <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ari" target="_new">Arizona Cardinals</a> in 2007. Davis didn't stick and spent most of 2007 on Detroit's practice squad before appearing in one game in which he recovered an attempted onside kick.</p> <p>It's unclear if the Texans see him mostly as a backup to <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9619" target="_new">DeMeco Ryans</a> in the middle or as a player who could possibly contribute outside.</p>
