Aaron Wilson has reported that the Houston Texans are finalizing a two-year contract with offensive tackle David Sharpe. Sharpe, aged 28, entered the NFL as a fourth-round selection by the Oakland Raiders in the 2017 draft. After being waived following the preseason, he joined the Texans’ practice squad.

Subsequently, Sharpe was elevated to Houston’s active roster before being waived again in 2018. He then found himself claimed off waivers by the Raiders and re-signed as a restricted free agent for a one-year term. However, his tenure with the Raiders was short-lived as he was traded to the Washington Football Team at the onset of the 2020 season.

Despite initially signing a one-year, $1.1 million deal with Washington in 2021, Sharpe was released during training camp. Following his departure from Washington, he joined the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad, eventually earning a spot on their active roster.

Sharpe’s journey continued as he signed a one-year contract with the Ravens, oscillating between the practice squad and active roster. Subsequently, the Ravens offered him a futures contract, but he was released during the following training camp.

The Carolina Panthers then added Sharpe to their practice squad before promoting him to the active roster. During the 2023 season, Sharpe participated in eight games for the Panthers.
