  • Brandon Dunn: Cut by Texans

    Dunn was released by the Texans on Thursday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

    Dunn missed the final three games in 2020 due to a fractured hip, but he was medically cleared ahead of training camp this year. The 28-year-old signed a three-year, $12 million contract with Houston in February 2020 but will now hit free agency with just under a month remaining until the regular season.

  • Texans' Brandon Dunn: Staying in Houston

    Dunn signed his one-year tender with the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The deal Dunn elected to sign is worth just over $2 million. Dunn started at nose tackle for the Texans in 2018, accumulating 24 tackles (13 solo) and one forced fumble across 14 games. He appears on track for a similar role during the 2019 season.

  • Texans' Brandon Dunn: Receives tender from Houston

    The Texans submitted a $2.025 million tender to Dunn on Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

    Dunn was decent for the Texans in 2018, racking up 24 tackles (13 solo) and one forced fumble in 14 games. In theory, a team could still sign him to an offer sheet but would have to give up a draft pick in return if Houston doesn't match it. If the 26-year-old stays, he likely will be the favorite to regain his role as the starting nose tackle.
