Texans re-sign Pittman, Acholonu, Murphy

HOUSTON (March 28, 2005) -- The Houston Texans re-signed long snapper Bryan Pittman, linebacker D.D. Acholonu and tight end Matt Murphy.

Pittman, a three-year veteran, has been the Texans' primary long snapper for the past two seasons. He made 150 snaps last year without an error.

Murphy is entering his third NFL season. He spent a year with the Detroit Lions before coming to Houston, playing mostly on special teams and a handful of offensive plays per game.

Acholonu spent most of last season on the Texans' practice squad before being activated for the final game, but didn't play.
