Texans re-signed RT Derek Newton to a five-year, $26.5 million contract with $10 million guaranteed.
PFF's highest-graded run blocker among right tackles last season, Newton garnered initial interest from the Redskins, but the Texans managed to keep their man. A seventh-round pick in 2011, Newton has had an up-and-down career but broke out last season at age 27. With Newton and Doug Free off the market, Bryan Bulaga should generate a ton interest over the next 72 hours. Houston's offensive line is shaping up from left to right as LT Duane Brown, LG Xavier Su'a-Filo, C Ben Jones, RG Brandon Brooks, and RT Newton. Mar 7 - 2:01 PM
