The Houston Texans have given safety Eric Murray a contract extension, according to ProFootball Network's Aaron Wilson. The deal is a 2-year, $10 million extension. Murray (age 28) first signed with the Texans in 2020 on a 3-year $20.5 million deal.

A lot of news has broken this week involving Texans safeties. Former Texan Justin Reid agreed to a 3-year deal with the Chiefs and AJ Moore signed a 1-year deal with the Titans.

The Texans signed Browns safety MJ Stewart to a 1-year deal, re-signed safety Terrance Brooks to a 1-year deal along with the Murray extension.

Many fans thought Laremy Tunsil's return and Reid's departure would pave the way for the Texans to draft Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton at No.3 overall. But Texans GM Nick Caserio is quickly filling holes, which could lead the Texans to simply draft the best player available.

Murray played in 16 games for the Texans last season, starting 11, while recording 1 interception, 4 passes defended, and 76 tackles.
