2019 NFL Free Agency: Houston Texans Sign Seantrel Henderson to Extension

New, comments

Not exactly a marquee signing, but at least it’s something.

Seantrel Henderson and Senio Kelemete were supposed to be part of the Texans’ newly rebuilt offensive line last year. Unfortunately, the Texans never really got a chance to see what Seantrel Henderson could do for the team since he suffered a season-ending injury in the first game of the season.

So in what can be considered effectively a do-over contract, the Texans have inked Henderson to a one-year deal after his previous one year, $4 million contract expired at the end of the Texans’ season earlier this month.

If Henderson can remain healthy, and that is a pretty big if at this point, he could potentially solve the headache that has been Houston’s right tackle position.

It also frees up a bit of draft capital so the Texans can potentially focus on other, higher, priorities during the 2019 NFL Draft , like, say, a left tackle or a cornerback.

Any thoughts you’d like to add about the Texans’ latest re-acquisition? Here’s your chance.
