Report: Texans re-sign P Lechler
The Houston Texans have re-signed punter Shane Lechler to a one-year $2 million deal with a $600,000 signing bonus, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle.
Lechler, 41, was second in the league last season with a 49-yard gross average on his punts, and tied for ninth with a net average of 41.3. He pinned opponents inside the 20-yard line 32 times (tied for fifth) and had five touchbacks.
Lechler has been with the Texans the last five seasons of his 18-year NFL career. He was with the Oakland Raiders from 2000-12.
Lechler has been named a Pro Bowler seven times (last in 2011) and first-team All-Pro six times (last in 2010) in his career.
