Texans reportedly hope to re-sign Tyrann Mathieu
The Houston Texans were clearly fans of what Tyrann Mathieu brought to their team, and they’re hoping to bring him back for another season.
According to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans are trying to re-sign Mathieu, who is set to become a free agent. They are, however, not close to a deal right now, and figure to face stiff competition for his services on the open market.

Mathieu featured in all 16 games for Houston last season, contributing 89 tackles, three sacks, and two interceptions. He reportedly took less money to go there last offseason, so he may be looking for a bigger deal this time around.
