The Houston Texans added to their defensive line by signing veteran Mario Edwards Jr. this offseason. Edwards adds nine years and 21.5 sacks of NFL experience to a pretty well-stocked defensive line in Texans.

His deal is pretty inexpensive, too. Edwards signed a one-year, $2 million contract with Houston, according to KPRC 2’s Aaron Wilson. The deal includes $500,000 in guaranteed money as well.

Here’s the full breakdown:

  • Terms: one year, $2
  • Guaranteed money: $500,000
  • Signing bonus: $200,000
  • 2024 base salary: $1.21 million
  • 2024 cap hit: $1.62 million
  • Annual active roster bonus: $240,000
  • Pro Bowl incentive: $1 million

Edwards, 30, played for the Seattle Seahawks in 2023 after time with the then-Oakland Raiders, the New York Giants, the New Orleans Saints, the Chicago Bears and the Tennessee Titans. He registered two sacks, five tackles for a loss, six quarterback hits, 21 combined tackles and one forced fumble in 2023.

This is likely another depth signing for the Texans on the defensive line. Will Anderson Jr., Danielle Hunter and Denico Autry are likely locked in as starters, but the second interior defensive position remains up for grabs in 2024.
