Texans have reached a contract extension with safety Andre Hal, according to a source— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) August 31, 2017
The 25-year old safety was entering the final year of the rookie deal that he signed as a seventh-round pick back in 2014. Hal is set to make nearly $1.8 million this upcoming season, but this extension should have him making a lot more for a lot longer, keeping him in Deep Steel Blue for a few more years. Full details of the deal will be released soon.
Hal started eleven games last season at free safety and looks to be slotted in as the team’s starting free safety for this upcoming season. He has exceeded expectations as a seventh-round pick and is a big part of the team’s secondary.
Congratulations to Hal on the extension. We’re glad to see him stay with the Texans for a long time!
