Veteran DE Jerry Hughes re-signs with Texans

Jerry Hughes re-signed with the Houston Texans on Monday, setting him up for a 15th season in the NFL.

A Houston-area native, Hughes spent the past two seasons with the Texans. The defensive end turns 36 in August.

Hughes played all 17 regular-season games in each of his two campaigns with Houston but started just two games in 2023. He had three sacks, one forced fumble and 32 tackles last season after a nine-sack campaign in 2022.

Hughes has compiled 70 sacks, 19 forced fumbles, five recoveries, two interceptions and 479 tackles in 218 career games (152 starts) with the Indianapolis Colts (2010-12), Buffalo Bills (2013-21) and Texans.
