At least one Houston Texans franchise legend is sticking around.

After seeing so many big-name and big-time franchise players leave throughout his career, Jon Weeks wants nothing to do with that. So the Houston Texans offered Weeks a one-year deal to have him suit up for his 13th season with the team.

The past two seasons, the Texans have tried to bring in younger competition, but Weeks has prevailed repeatedly. Weeks does have one Pro Bowl selection to his name, which he earned back in the 2015 season.

Weeks’ contract being so short in duration (one year) must mean that they anticipate Weeks to retire soon, although that hasn’t been the best thing to expect. Aaron Wilson shares his contract details below:

Should the Houston Texans add another long snapper to the practice squad?

It’s a rare year in the draft where a punter has a lot of attention (Matt Araiza, San Diego State), and another specialist, Cal Adomitis (Pitt’s long snapper), does too. Now, this isn’t saying Adomitis should be carried on the active roster, but spending a sixth or seventh-round pick to invest in your special teams can’t hurt.

The only time you know a long snapper exists is if something goes wrong. Weeks’ job is safe for sure, but to have someone on the practice squad who is already skilled at it is a great idea. So here’s to a Houston Texans legend staying home, hopefully for his entire career.

Maybe Houston can draft a legend in this year’s draft; time will tell.
