Former Ole Miss quarterback Jordan Ta’amu signed with the Houston Texans on Wednesday as an undrafted free agent.

The Texans picked up Ta’amu after their backup signal-caller, former Alabama starter A.J. McCarron, went down with a thumb injury.

McCarron is expected to miss a good portion of the preseason with this injury, according to the Texans organization.

In May, the Pearl City, Hawaii native attended the Texans and Oakland Raiders rookie mini-camp but was not offered a contract.

During his tenure in Oxford, Ta’amu broke the all-time school passing record for four, 400-yard passing games. He also tied Chad Kelly’s record with 12, 300-yard passing games and threw for 30 touchdowns in his career – ninth in Rebel history.

As a senior, he passed for over 3,900 yards with 19 touchdowns and rushed for six touchdowns on the ground.

The Texans will open preseason play tonight as they travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers at Lambeau Field. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.
