Here's an easy fix to one of the most aggravating parts of watching Texans, NFL

According to ESPN's Sarah Barshop, the Texans and running back Rex Burkhead have agreed to a contract extension.

Burkhead will be 32 years old next season, so the Texans still need to find a younger long-term option at some point this offseason. The details of the extension are still unknown, but he is currently being paid a little under $1.4 million for this season, per Spotrac. Burkhead has been mentioned favorably by GM Nick Caserio recently, so this extension doesn't come as a surprise.
