The Houston Texans and linebacker Blake Cashman have agreed to terms on a one-year contract extension, KPRC's Aaron Wilson reports.
Cashman, 26, is in his first season with the Texans. He was acquired via trade this offseason from the New York Jets in exchange for a sixth-round pick. He’s been a special teams standout playing in 73% of the snaps this season.
The fourth-year pro was drafted by the Jets in the fifth round in 2019. He was riddled with injuries his first three seasons in the NFL.
Dealing with mainly soft tissue injuries, with multiple groin and hamstring injuries over the years, Cashman also recovered from a torn labrum and broken shoulder during his rookie season.
This year, he’s been lauded by teammates for his work ethic and devotion to the weight room.
