According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the Texans have signed punter Bryan Anger to a three-year contract extension.

Anger has been a bright spot for the Texans on a very good special teams unit this season after signing with the team following the Week 2 release of incumbent starter Trevor Daniel. The Texans originally released Anger in training camp, opting to keep Daniel, but the team brought him back after Daniel struggled in the first two games of the season.

Since then, Anger has been one of the best punters in the NFL, netting the fifth-highest net average in the league. In 40 punts this season, 21 have landed inside the 20-yard line. His 52.5 percent of punts inside the 20-yard line lead the league.

Anger has been a big part of a huge turnaround for a much-improved special teams unit. It’s good to see that his stay in Houston will last past the 2019 season.

Congrats on the extension, Bryan!
