We interrupt your regularly scheduled Stardew Valley longplay quarantine/work from home with the following announcement.

The Texans have signed former Eagles defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan to a one-year contract worth $3.75 million (with $1.75 million guaranteed).

Jernigan missed most of the 2018-19 season after having surgery on his back during the offseason. Before his injury, Jernigan was known primarily for his ability to stuff the run. He will bring some much-needed depth to the Texans defensive line.

This continues a trend seen in the William O’Brien — General Manager era of the Texans: giving one year “prove it” deals to potentially high-quality players coming off of recent long-term injuries; this method started with Tyrann Mathieu two years ago. If Jernigan can remain healthy, and that’s a pretty sizable if, his signing could really pay off for the Texans.

What do y’all think, Texans fans? Like the signing? Hate it? Meh? Let us know.

We now return you to your Stardew Valley playing already in progress.
