Seantrel Henderson’s inaugural season in Houston ended prematurely when he broke his ankle versus the Patriots week 1. But that didn’t stop the Texans from re-signing the talented 26-year-old.
The 6’8″ tackle signed a one-year deal in 2018 for $4 million and impressed before his season-ending injury. So much so that he entered the 2019 season as the starter at right tackle.
Despite his injury, the Texans decided to re-up on his contract with another one-year deal worth $4.5 million. Though it is unclear what his role will be within the Texans offense.
General manager Brian Gaine will have his hands full during the off-season as he will need to improve an offensive line that gave up a league-high 62 sacks. At the minimum, Henderson will offer the Texans depth and competition to an offensive line that is expected to look very different come the 2019 season.
