Another Texans DB becomes an Ex-an."According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com Arian Foster Jersey
, the Broncos have agreed to terms with Kareem Jackson.Jackson, a Texans 2010 first-round pick, was the longest tenured Texan on the roster last season following the release of linebacker Brian Cushing.Jackson enjoyed a breakout year last season with career highs in tackles (87) and forced fumbles (2). He also started every game for the Texans, something he had not done since his rookie year.Last season, Jackson made a long-awaited move to safety, but found himself playing cornerback often due to the Texans’ lack of depth at the position after Kevin Johnson wen down.Jackson follows former teammate Tyrann Mathieu to the AFC West after earning the largest contract of his career.Jackson, 30 Andre Johnson Jersey
, will make $33 million over the next three years for the Broncos, with $23 million of that sum reportedly guaranteed.It’s definitely bittersweet to see K-Jax go.His $11M per year salary might be out of Houston’s price range for the position, but there is certainly a happiness for Kareem to see him make so much money after busting his tail in Houston for years.He’s definitely earned his payday after playing in his best season of his career last season.Congrats Kareem on the next step in Denver!Hair of the Dog - Giants v. Texans (Dog Tired of This [KITTEN]) They say that a picture is worth 10,000 words (I don’t care that it’s usually 1,000; the original Confucian proverb says 10,000, so we’re going with that).So I won’t bore you with my thoughts on Sunday’s game Jose Altuve Jersey
, especially since pretty much everything I laid out can be found in Matt Weston’s excellent forthcoming Incompletions post.Instead, I will just post a picture of our great brain genius, the offensive innovator we were promised, photoshopped as Brain from the cartoon series “Pinky and the Brain,” because that’s just how much of a brain genius our big, moist-headed coach is.Besides, this week’s HotD is thin on submissions Jadeveon Clowney Jersey
