Molden, Antwaun

Card: Bowman 2008
Acquired: TTM 2009, Texans Blitz

Promising cornerback from Eastern Kentucky- Antwaun Molden was drafted in the 3rd round by the Houston Texans in the 2008 draft. A series of unrelated injuries have limited the young, rangy defensive back from participating with the team since being drafted. In 2008 he made a fumble recovery and a tackle, and in 2010 he made 6 tackles. He’s played primarily on special teams for the Texans, but has seen little or no time on the field in the secondary.

With the team blowing up its defense after the 2010 season because of an extremely porous secondary, it is suspected that it is do or die time for Antwaun as the team will be looking to shake things up. Antwaun’s future may lie eventually at safety as this former track man has the speed to play the position, but has yet to find the place he fits best in the Texans’ defense.

UPDATE: On late Tuesday, August 30th, 2011, Antwaun would be among the Texans first round of cuts and would be claimed by the Patriots.
