Bringing back Ryan Griffin is a good move for the Houston Texans.

It’s been a few days and the Houston Texans have finally made a move in free agency, even though they’re re-signing one of their own in tight end Ryan Griffin.

Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston broke the news about Griffin re-upping with the Texans.

It turns out that the Detroit Lions were also interested in Griffin.

From State of the Texans:

"“It feels great, feels great. We got it worked out. I’m excited.” Griffin said to Mark Berman of Fox 26 (Houston) “I know what type of organization is here. We were a win away from the (AFC) championship game. We need a couple more wins to get that ring. So I’m excited.”"

The 27 year-old Griffin had a break out year for the Texans in 2016 with 50 receptions for 442 yards and two touchdowns.

Griffin has developed into a nice offensive weapon after the Texans drafted him in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL draft after playing his college ball at UConn.

Griffin formed a nice duo with C.J. Fiedorowicz this past season that will now be able to continue into 2017.

Update: Griffin’s contract will pay him about $3 million a year.
