The Houston Texans are expected to re-sign top cornerback Bradley Roby, according to The Houston Chronicle‘s Aaron Wilson. The deal will be valued at $36 million over three years, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reports.
In 10 games during the 2019 season, Roby recorded 38 total tackles, eight pass breakups, two interceptions and a quarterback sack. He missed portions of the year with a hamstring injury.
Roby, 27, spent the first five seasons of his NFL career with the Broncos before the Texans signed him to a one-year, $10 million deal last offseason. He made it known that he wanted to stay with Houston past the 2019 season, saying that he was “very hopeful” to get a new deal.
The NFL’s legal tampering period opens on Monday at 12 p.m. Free agency will still begin at 4 p.m. on Wednesday amid the coronavirus pandemic.
