Kamu Grugier-Hill was one of the few bright spots on the Houston Texans defense in 2021. He'll be roaming the field for them again in 2022.
The outside linebacker agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with Houston, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday. It represents a deserving pay bump for the seventh-year veteran.
Grugier-Hill tallied a team-high 108 tackles, along with 13 tackles for loss and three sacks. All of those marks were career highs, as were his 14 starts, and they about doubled his production since entering the league as a sixth-round pick with the Patriots in 2016.
