  • McKinney signed a five-year, $50 million contract extension that includes $21 million guaranteed, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, McKinney is now under contract through 2023. The 25-year-old linebacker has been consistent, starting all 32 games for the Texans over the past two seasons while totaling 224 tackles in the same span. He's a fixture in the center of their defense and his contract indicates he'll continue to be for the next several years.

  • McKinney recorded 95 tackles (62 solo) and three sacks in 16 games for the Texans in 2017. McKinney started the season strong with 17 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble across Weeks 1 and 2, but didn't log any other true impact performances. All in all it was a decent season for the 25-year-old, but a definite step down from his 129 tackle and five sack output in 2016. The 2015-second round pick will aim to recreate that production next season as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.

    By RotoWire Staff

  • McKinney recorded six tackles, including two sacks, in Thursday's 13-9 win over the Bengals. McKinney is being asked to be a three-down linebacker this season. He played 59 of 64 snaps in the season opener, followed by 63 of 64 snaps Thursday. Those additional plays can lead to more tackles and sacks over the course of the season, particularly with Brian Cushing (suspension) set to miss another nine games. McKinney currently leads the Texans with 17 tackles.
