2015 Houston Texans Free Agency News: Texans Re-Sign Kareem Jackson to 4-Year Deal

New, comments

First Derek Newton, and now it's Kareem Jackson whom your Houston Texans re-sign. Might Shiloh Keo be next? Hint: no.

Kareem Jackson and his tongue theoretically return to your Houston Texans for four more years.  No word if the tongue required a second contract.

Free agency is sooooooooo boring.  Why won't the Texans ever do something?

Fear not, BRB, as your Houston Texans have re-signed another key component to the starting squad, re-upping Kareem Jackson after doing the same with Derek Newton earlier today.

Adam Schefter brings us the good news:

Much like the aforementioned Newton, Jackson was absolutely dreadful his first couple years in the league.  But, oh my, did he improve.

While not an elite cornerback, Jackson is solid, dependable, versatile, and absolutely one of the best tackling CBs in the league today.  Losing him would've been a problematic situation, at best.  If Johnathan Joseph also returns, the Texans will have one of the more solid CB tandems in the league.  We'll update with contract terms once they are known.

And now?  Ryan Mallett Watch 2015.
