HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans have signed left tackle Duane Brown to a new contract.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed Thursday and Brown's agent, Andy Ross, did not immediately return a phone message. The Houston Chronicle and KRIV-TV first reported that the team had reached an agreement with Brown, whose contract was due to expire after this season.
The 6-foot-4, 320-pound Brown has started all but four games since the Texans drafted him with the 26th overall pick in 2008. Brown earned Associated Press All-Pro second team honors in 2011 after helping the Texans set a franchise record for yards rushing (2,448). Brown was not called for holding once last season.
