Texans sign CB Tremon Smith to one-year contract extension

The Houston Texans have actually revealed they have actually signed cornerback Tremon Smith to an agreement extension.

Smith, a previous Kansas City Chiefs 2018 sixth-round choice from Central Arkansas, has actually been a good factor for the Texans in 2021. The 5-11, 190-pound protective back has actually gathered 14 combined deals with and a forced fumble along with returning a punt for a backyard and 6 kicks for 156 return lawns.

According to Aaron Wilson from Sports Talk 790, the agreement is for one with an optimum worth of $1.6 million. The ensured base pay is $300,000 with a $150,000 finalizing benefit with a $50,000 exercise benefit.

Unique groups coach Frank Ross informed press reporters on Dec. 2 that he is delighted with what Smith has actually offered as a kick returner.

“He looked really good in that one opportunity we had there last week,” Ross stated. “You guys all know this, that it’s an 11-man show. One break down might stop you in your tracks. Two break downs, you might not have any shot at all. When you do get that one crease, when you do get that one shot, he’s got the speed and a little bit of wiggle to him. We want to attack aggressively downhill. I think he’s done a good job with that. Going to continue to press him to do just that.”

The Texans handle the Indianapolis Colts Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time at NRG Arena.
