Texans sign LB Cory Littleton to one-year deal


(SportsRadio 610) - The Texans added a one-time All-Pro linebacker Tuesday by signing Cory Littleton to a one-year deal.

Littleton spent last season with the Panthers, where he had 47 tackles in 15 games (seven starts). He spent two seasons before that as a starter for the Las Vegas Raiders and was with the Los Angeles Rams from 2016-2019.

Littleton, 29, claimed his best season in 2018, when he was named to the Pro Bowl and second team All-Pro.

In Houston, Littleton joins a Texans team led by first-year head coach DeMeco Ryans, a former All-Pro linebacker himself who has also coached the position. Littleton's deal is for one year, up to $2.7 million, KPRC's Aaron Wilson reported.

The Texans have made several key free agent acquisitions on both sides of the ball.

Littleton joins safety Jimmie Ward, defensive tackles Sheldon Rankins and Hassan Ridgeway and defensive end Chase Winovich as the Texans' free agent signings on defense.

They will try to improve a unit that for the last three seasons has been among the league's worst against the run.
