Look out, Peyton Manning!

Bernard Pollard is coming to a division near you.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the Houston Texans have signed the ex-Kansas City Chiefs safety.

Yes, the same Bernard Pollard infamous for ending Tom Brady's 2008 season with an ACL-tearing hit in the first game of the year.

The signing of Pollard fills the roster spot left open by left guard Chester Pitts, who is out for the season following microfracture surgery.

It is unclear what Pollard's main role will be with the Texans, although he's likely to see time playing on special teams.

The 24-year-old former second round pick from Purdue had 98 tackles with one interception last season for Kansas City.
