The Texans have signed fullback Jay Prosch to a three-year, $5.75MM contract extension, ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweets. The deal includes $2.7MM in guarantees.

Prosch, who was entering the last year of his contract prior to the extension, has spent his entire career in Houston since the team selected the former Auburn Tiger in the sixth round of the 2014 draft. He appeared in all but one of 48 possible regular-season games during his first three years, though he hasn’t been a significant factor on offense. Thus far, the 25-year-old Prosch has started in eight games and totaled 12 touches (10 carries, two receptions).

While Prosch hasn’t made a name for himself offensively, he has been a reliable special teamer for the Texans. Prosch’s work with that unit has increased each season, as his ST snaps went from 109 to 208 to 220 during his first three years in the league. Prosch saw the fifth-most action of any of Houston’s special teamers in 2016, though Football Outsiders ranked its ST unit as the NFL’s second worst.
