Atlantic City native Jack Corcoran is getting a second chance with the National Football League.
After being signed to a free-agent contract as a fullback by the Houston Texans in April, Corcoran was cut on June 16.
Corcoran, 22, a St. Joseph High School and Rutgers University graduate, was re-signed by the Texans on Wednesday, according to the team's website. He was called back to replace Justin Griffith, who was placed on the injured reserve after suffering a spinal cord concussion/contusion.
Corcoran is the second undrafted rookie free agent the Texans have brought back for camp. Arkansas wide receiver London Crawford, who was also released by Houston on June 16, was brought in over the weekend for Glenn Martinez.
