General manager Nick Caserio has added a 38th new veteran to the Texans’ roster – former Jets linebacker Neville Hewitt, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The signing of Hewitt to a one-year deal, first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, gives the Texans 88 players on the roster. They have room for two more.

Last season, Hewitt led the Jets with 134 tackles. He’ll be entering his seventh season and will compete for a starting job in Lovie Smith’s 4-3 defense.

Hewitt, 28, originally signed as an undrafted free agent with Miami in 2015. He’s the seventh new linebacker acquired by Caserio.
