  • Texans' Christian Kirksey: Re-signing with Texans

    Kirksey is set to sign a two-year extension to remain with the Texans, Mark Lane of The USA Today reports.

    In his first season with the Texans, Kirksey, who turns 30 in August, recorded 93 tackles -- the most he's put up since 2017 -- over the course of 13 games (12 starts), while adding one interception. He's now in line to retain his starting linebacker spot this coming season, a role that resulted in Kirksey being Houston's defensive signal-caller in 2021.
