Bolts Add Former Texans DT Marcus Hardison

The Los Angeles Chargers added a new defensive tackle into the mix on Tuesday as they’ve claimed Marcus Hardison off waivers from the Houston Texans.

A 6-3, 315-pound product out of Arizona State, Hardison originally entered the NFL as a fourth-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals after posting 10 sacks and 15 tackles for loss as a senior. He remained on the Bengals active roster the entire year but did not see action in a game. Hardison suffered a shoulder injury during the 2016 preseason which forced him to miss the entire year.

After the Bengals waived him during last year’s final roster reductions, Hardison spent parts of 2017 on the practice squads for the Jacksonville Jaguars, New England Patriots and Texans. He appeared in three preseason games for Houston this year, recording three tackles, one sack and one pass defensed.

In a corresponding move, the Bolts waived/injured tackle Zach Crabtree.
