According to multiple reports, the Houston Texans are signing former Lions linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin to a 2-year, $7.5 million deal with $5 million guaranteed.

The Texans re-signed LB Christian Kirksey recently, but clearly they weren't finished addressing linebacker. Many believe these signings, Reeves-Maybin specifically, mean Kamu Grugier-Hill will not be retuning to the team.

Reeves-Maybin is 27 years old and played in 15 games, 11 starts, for Detroit last season. He recorded 82 tackles and two forced fumbles. He was drafted out of Tennessee in the 4th round by the Lions in 2017.
