The Houston Texans have brought veteran receiver David Anderson back into the fold. The 28-year-old Anderson signed Tuesday afternoon after a morning workout at Methodist Training Center.

To make room for Anderson on the roster, the Texans waived defensive end Tim Bulman.

Anderson gives the Texans a fifth receiver, and provides much needed depth and insurance in case fellow wide-out Kevin Walter’s bruised collarbone forces him to miss some action.

Anderson was a Texans seventh-round pick from Colorado State in 2006, playing five seasons with the team. Houston waived him after the lockout ended and he signed with Denver. The Broncos released him in the roster reduction to 53.

Due to Walter’s injury, Jacoby Jones is expected to start the Texans first road test of the season against Miami opposite Andre Johnson. Bryant Johnson would be elevated to the third spot, with Anderson becoming the fourth wideout.

Anderson’s best season came in 2009 when he caught 38 passes for 370 yards, including 22 grabs that produced first downs. Last season, he had 11 receptions for 117 yards and 10 first downs.
