The Houston Texans skilled left tackle Duane Brown is the most recent player to hit the jackpot.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Texans have signed Brown to a contract extension.
General manager Rick Smith issued a statement.
“We are thrilled to have solidified our offensive line with this extension for Duane,” said Texans Executive Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Rick Smith in a statement from the team. “We believe Duane is an outstanding young left tackle who has the determination, commitment and ability to develop into one of the NFL’s top performers. It’s also an exciting day for our organization. We’ve laid the foundation for sustained success and this is an important step in building on that and toward a championship.”
Terms of the deal were not disclosed but reports are that it is for six years $53.4 million with $22 million guaranteed.
It is a good deal for the Texans with the 2nd team all pro only turning 27 this month. The Texans have established themselves as a team to deal with in the near future.
