The Houston Texans have rewarded safety Andre Hal with a new contract.
The Houston Texans have signed starting safety Andre Hal to a contract extension, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Hal is a former 2014 seventh round pick of the Texans that was converted from cornerback to safety out of the Vanderbilt University.
Despite losing his starting job last year, Hal was able to get it back in time for the playoffs and now the Texans clearly feel like they can trust him going forward.
Pro Football Focus gave Hal an overall grade of 72.3 for 2016.
The 25 year-old Hal recorded 48 tackles, one sack and two interceptions last season for Houston.
Hal along with the rest of the Texans’ defense will have to prove to the rest of the NFL that they can dominate once again in 2017 after ending last season as the No. 1 ranked defense in the entire league.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle has the details of Hal’s contract.
Money keeps pouring in for Houston.
Texans’ star J.J. Watt has done an amazing job now that his fundraiser for the city of Houston has reached over $10 million.
The number is actually at $10.9 million right now. It’s about to eclipse $11 million. This is truly incredible.
What’s really great is that other NFL teams are also donating money to Watt’s fundraiser as well.
Watt has made it clear that the money will go straight to the people and that he’s having trucks come in to provide, food, water, clothing, generators and baby supplies.
