HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans have agreed to a one-year deal with linebacker Tim Dobbins.

David Canter, Dobbins' agent, confirmed the new deal Wednesday in a text message after announcing it on Twitter.

The 6-foot-1, 236-pound Dobbins played in 14 games last season and started five after Brian Cushing sustained a season-ending knee injury in October. He was also a special teams captain and made 43 tackles and intercepted a pass in 2012, his second season with the Texans. Dobbins missed the playoffs with an ankle injury.
