Roby has agreed to a contract extension with the Texans, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. Per Aaron Reiss of The Athletic, the deal is for three years and is worth up to $36 million. While the two sides are waiting on Roby's physical plus the final language of the new collective bargaining agreement before finalizing the deal, it nonetheless appears Roby is set to be the Texans' starting slot corner in 2020 and beyond.
Roby is expected to finalize an extension with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. The deal isn't done, but Houston is apparently close to locking up one of its starting corners before Roby is allowed to hit the open market Tuesday. Roby played for the Texans on a one-year, "prove it" deal in 2019, and the 27-year-old racked up 38 tackles, eight PBUs, two interceptions and one forced fumble over 10 games.
Roby had 38 tackles, one sack, eight passes defensed, two interceptions, one touchdown and one forced fumble over 10 games in 2019. Roby posted respectable numbers in his first season in Houston, but the defense overall stumbled. Per Pro Football Focus, Roby graded out highest among Houston's secondary, a unit that PFF graded 28th in the NFL. The six-year veteran enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and the Texans are expected to overhaul the back line of the defense.
Roby (hamstring) will play in the Saturday's wild-card game versus the Bills. Roby's availability is big, as fellow starting cornerback Johnathan Joseph has been ruled out. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual role.
Roby (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's playoff contest against the Bills. Roby has logged a trio of limited practices, which is a good sign for his availability after missing Week 17's regular-season finale against the Titans. The 2014 first-round pick appears to be trending in the right direction to suit up when the Texans host Buffalo on Saturday.
