2021 NFL Free Agency: Houston Texans Sign Justin Britt

Nick Martin’s replacement has been secured. Probably.

Your Houston Texans cut their starting center a week ago. Earlier today, they signed the guy who’ll likely replace Nick Martin.

Justin Britt tore his ACL halfway through the 2019 season and was cut by the Seahawks the following offseason. Despite working out for a few teams before and during the 2020 season, Britt didn’t sign with anyone and therefore did not play at all in 2020. Now Britt has found work in Houston on a one-year deal, where he’ll presumably step in for Martin as the signal-caller on Houston’s offensive line. Your thoughts? Is Britt an upgrade over Martin or at least a roughly laterally talented and cheaper hire?
