Texans sign LT Brown to new contract
The six-year contract is worth $53.4 million, with $22.08 million guaranteed, a person with direct knowledge of the deal said on condition of anonymity because terms have not been released by the team.
“I understand they had a lot of confidence in me, a lot of faith in me,” Brown said. “I’m just very grateful. I try to put in as much work as possible, and just do my part for this team and make it successful, and I’m going to continue to do that.”
The 6-foot-4, 320-pound Brown has started all but four games since the Texans drafted him with the 26th overall pick in 2008. Brown earned Associated Press All-Pro second team honors in 2011 after helping the Texans set a franchise record for yards rushing (2,448). Brown was not called for holding once last season.
