Texans signed OLB Whitney Mercilus to a four-year, $26 million contract extension through 2019.
It contains $10.8 million guaranteed, including a $5.25 million signing bonus. The 26th overall pick in the 2012 draft, the Texans declined Mercilus' fifth-year team option and instead locked him up through his age-29 season. Mercilus has been a bit of a disappointment in the sack department, registering 18 sacks through 47 games, but he's coming off a great year against the run. May 4 - 6:43 PM
