Bryan Witzmann

Somerset native Bryan Witzmann has signed a free agent with the NFL's Houston Texans.

Witzmann was signed by the Texans minutes after the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft. Witzmann announced his signing on his Facebook page.

Witzmann was a standout offensive lineman for South Dakota State University, starting four years as the team's left tackle. Witzmann said in an interview last week that Houston had been staying in close contact with him and the Texans were the NFL team most interested in him.
