3:42pm: Dent’s two-year deal with the Texans is worth $4.5MM, with $2MM guaranteed, tweets McClain.
2:30pm: The Texans have re-signed linebacker Akeem Dent, tweets John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. Dent’s agency confirms the agreement between the two sides, announcing (via Twitter) that it’s a two-year contract for their client.
Dent, 27, spent the 2014 season with the Texans after playing for the Falcons for three years. In his first year in Houston, the former third-round pick recorded 38 tackles and a sack in part-time action, earning playing time at multiple linebacker spots.
Dent’s agent indicated earlier this week that, in addition to the Texans, two other teams were engaged in “extensive dialogue” about a potential deal for the linebacker. However, it’s not clear which clubs were in play.
Financial terms of the agreement aren’t yet known.
