Despite suffering a season-ending injury in his first game as a Texan, Seantrel Henderson said he wanted to stay in Houston. He made good on that promise Saturday.
The Texans announced they re-signed the would-be free agent tackle. Henderson will be tethered to a one-year Texans deal for the second straight season. This contract looks similar to Henderson’s 2018 Houston pact, with Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reporting (on Twitter) it will carry a max value of $4.5MM.
A former seventh-round pick who became a Bills starter during his first two seasons in the league, Henderson signed with the Texans as a free agent last year. He signed for $4MM but went down in Week 1, beginning a season that featured many issues for the Texans’ offensive line.
Although they did not get much out of their previous Henderson investment, the Texans are clearly interested in seeing if he can stay healthy and play a role on their 2019 line.
