Bouye and the Texans were in discussion of a long-term contract until the team went out and signed quarterback Brock Osweiler and running back Lamar Miller. The two new additions forced the Texans to assign him to the right of first refusal tender. Bouye drew interest from other teams, but showed his loyalty by not signing an offer sheet.
Bouye, 24, stands at 6-foot, 186 pounds and has spent the last three seasons with Houston. During that span, he has combined for 69 tackles, five interceptions and 16 passes defended.
As the Texans’ fourth cornerback last season, Bouye played in 15 games and recorded 15 tackles, two interceptions and six passes defended.
Entering his fourth NFL season, the undrafted Bouye will continue to leave his mark in the Houston Texans’ secondary.
