The Houston Texans claimed former Clemson Tiger Andre Ellington off of waivers on Tuesday. That means he’ll be teammates with his cousin, former South Carolina wide receiver Bruce Ellington.
The Texans Twitter account pounced on the opportunity to make a “Step Brothers” joke. Take a look:

Funny stuff. The timing is fitting, given that Clemson and South Carolina square off this weekend.
Andre Ellington gained almost 4,000 yards from scrimmage in his time at Clemson and scored 35 touchdowns. Bruce Ellington caught 106 passes for 1,586 yards in his career for South Carolina.
