Texans To Sign LB Kevin Pierre-Louis

Kevin Pierre-Louis is signing a two-year deal with the Texans, reports ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler (via Twitter). The deal is worth up to $8MM, per Fowler.

The multiyear offer must have been alluring to the 29-year-old linebacker, who has played for four different teams over the past four years. After spending the first three seasons of his career with the Seahawks, the Boston College product has since spent time with the Chiefs, Jets, Bears, and Washington.

He had one of the better seasons of his career in 2020 with WFT. He started a career-high 11 games, collecting 56 tackles, three tackles for loss, one sack, and one forced fumble. Ron Rivera was apparently a fan of Pierre-Louis, as the head coach stated that he wanted to retain the veteran linebacker.

“I’d love to get a guy with the skill set of Kevin Pierre-Louis, whether it’s Kevin or someone else,” Rivera said recently (via Sam Fortier of the Washington Post on Twitter). “I’d love to have Kevin back.”
