The Houston Texans and outside guard Whitney Mercilus signed a four-year, $ 54 million contract extension, which includes $ 28.5 million in guaranteed income.
Mosilus was a 2012 first-round pick for the Texans. He would have been a free agent after the season. Although he will be 30 years old in 2020, he still dedicates a high level of performance.
In the first 4 games of the season, Mosilus was in a hot state, scoring 5 times, 1 interception and 4 forced drops. But his performance has declined since then, especially after teammate JJ Watt was injured and sidelined. Before the end of the regular season, Mosilus scored a total of 7.5 sacks and 2 interceptions.
After winning the Sixteenth Week to lock in the Southern League title, the team's coach, Bill O'Brien, said he wanted Mosirus to stay.
Mosirus' renewal can strengthen the Texas pass in the future. The Texans traded Jadeveon Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks before the start of the season, and Watt has been plagued by injuries over the years. Mosilus has been performing consistently.
In addition to renewing their contract with Mosilus, the Texans also renewed their contract with abandoned kicker Bryan Anger for 3 years. In the first season of playing for the team, Angel played well, with an average of 44.1 yards per abandon kick, setting a career high, and 21 times of abandon kicks into the opponent's 20 yard line. In his 40 abandon kicks, the Texans only allowed opponents to return for 44 yards.(Edit: Yao Fan)
