Approximately one year after coming to H-Town, Nick Ferguson has decided to stick around. Ferguson, like every other Texans safety, won't be confused with Ed Reed, but he proved his worth last season stepping into a starting role after Will Demps went MIA. His return should not in any way diminish the importance of adding talent to the secondary; it does, however, give Smithiak a bit more leeway in terms of where they might target safety help in the draft.
Terms of Ferguson's contract have yet to be disclosed, but I cannot imagine it's anything that would approach breaking the bank. As such, I like the move. Ferguson is fairly stout in run support and should be able to push Dominique Barber and/or whoever else is brought onboard for playing time.
