Houston Texans are bringing back a critical piece on defense
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Houston Texans and DT Maliek Collins have agreed to a contract. Collins will return to the Texans on a 2-year, $17 million deal with $8.5 million guaranteed.
We've heard several reports that the Texans were looking to find a way to bring Collins back, and they did exactly that. Lovie Smith mentioned Collins during his NFL Combine interview as one of several players the team was hoping to retain. The 26-year-old defensive tackle started 15 games and recorded 2.5 sacks with 7 QB hits for Houston in 2021. Collins was drafted by the Cowboys out of Nebraska in the third round in 2016.
