Texans sign former Arkansas WR Cobi Hamilton to practice squad

Cobi Hamilton is packing his bags for Houston.

Hamilton, a former Arkansas receiver, signed with the Texans on Friday and was added to their practice squad.

Hamilton has bounced around the league since being drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the sixth round of the 2013 draft. He didn’t make the Bengals’ roster as a rookie and has moved around every season since, spending 2014 with the Philadelphia Eagles, 2015 with the Miami Dolphins and splitting time between the Carolina Panthers and Pittsburgh Steelers last season.

His stint with the Steelers was his most successful to date, as he finally appeared in a regular-season game. In fact, Hamilton played in 11 games for Pittsburgh last season — including eight starts — and reeled in 17 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns.

During his final season with the Razorbacks in 2012, Hamilton was an All-SEC selection after catching 90 passes for 1,335 yards and five touchdowns, both single-season school records. His 303 receiving yards against Rutgers in 2012 marked a single-game yardage record for an SEC player.

Hamilton finished his time at Arkansas with 175 receptions for 2,854 yards and 18 touchdowns.
