P&P: Deciding whether Texans should extend Tytus Howard


No NFL team spends more on its offensive line than the Houston Texans.

Just this offseason, they paid left tackle Laremy Tunsil a three-year extension worth up to $75 million with $60 million in total guarantees. Then right guard Shaq Mason, for whom the Texans traded for this offseason from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, received a three-year extension worth $36 million.

Left guard Kenyon Green is in the second-year of his rookie deal (four years, $15.9 million) after being selected No. 15 overall in 2022. The center position is occupied by low cost journeymen veterans and rookies.

Then there's right tackle Tytus Howard, making $13,2 million this season on the fifth-year option of his rookie deal. Without an extension, Howard could become a free agent after this season, or the Texans could use the franchise tag to keep him.

Payne & Pendergast discussed Wednesday morning whether the Texans should extend Howard, or let it play out another season.
