4. Not getting a fourth year in Laremy Tunsil contract

As great as it was for the Texans to re-sign Laremy Tunsil for the next three seasons, getting a fourth year from the left tackle to anchor the offensive line and protect the blindside of Deshaun Watson would have been ideal.

Having Tunsil in a Texans uniform is great and the franchise should be glad he’s on the roster, but they most likely cost themselves more money in the future. If Tunsil is dominant at the left tackle spot the next three seasons, when it comes time to re-sign him again, the check will be even larger than the three-year, $66 million deal ($50 million guaranteed) that he just signed.

Tunsil is a player who was selected to the Pro Bowl this past season, and he had a Pro Football Focus grade of 75.8 in 2019 as he allowed just three sacks that same season.

Again, having Tunsil on the roster for an extended period of time was some of the best Texans news this entire offseason, but after thinking about the deal, one more extra year would have made the contract that much better for the Texans.
