Mark Berman: "Texans reach contract agreement with Duane Brown"

78

Nick Scurfield tweeted it's not official, so there's a little disagreement here. However, Mark Berman is a darn good source. No details yet on the contract. Regardless, tying up Brown long term is a fantastic move by the Texans' front office. Brown, who was a surprise pick in 2008 after the Texans traded down, has gone from the worst left tackle in the league to one of the best. Brown is just 27 years old and is entering his prime years. Update: Deal is 6 years, $53.4MM, with $22.08MM guaranteed. An absolutely fantastic deal for both the team and Duane. Nicely done.

Texans Sign LB Omar Gaither, Place LB Keyaron Fox On IR

6

Via the newest Texans beat writer, Tania Ganguli. Gaither saw action in 10 games last year for Carolina (who had a terrible defense in 2011), starting three while recording a single sack. Let's all hope he brings insider information with him to help us crush Carolina on Saturday. /snickers/ Fox needs knee surgery.

Texans $4.05MM Under Cap

87

Via PFT, your Houston Texans are only $4.05MM under the salary cap. Of course, there will be a small but ignorant chorus claiming "BOB MCNAIR IS A CHEAPSKAT!", but the team cannot simultaneously be bumping against the cap and be cheap. Making this a FanShot to keep TDC's art atop the page.
