Defensive back Leigh Bodden is visiting the Houston Texans on Sunday in an attempt to find a home for the 2010 season, according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain.
Bodden just completed his first year in New England, securing 47 tackles in 15 games while also nabbing five interceptions. He saw his value rise as a Patriot, one of the reasons he came to town after a poor season in Detroit.
Bodden hoped to take advantage of his comeback season to ink a contract worth a substantial amount of money. The Patriots expressed an interest in bringing Bodden back, but the 28-year-old wanted to test the free-agent market.
Now that he's done so, his "price has come way down" according to McClain. While such an occurrence is good news for the Patriots in their continued efforts to bring him back to Foxboro, it also opens him up to having more suitors. At this point, it's a waiting game to find out where Bodden lands.
