NFL: New England Patriots at Houston Texans

Houston Texans cornerback Bradley Roby (21) runs after intercepting a pass from New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (not pictured) during the 2019 season.

The Houston Texans agreed to re-sign cornerback Bradley Roby to a three-year deal worth $36 million, according to multiple reports Sunday, keeping him off the free agent market.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the deal includes $17 million in guarantees.

Roby, 27 and a Peachtree Ridge grad, was set to be an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year, which is set for 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Instead he will remain with Houston and be under contract through 2022.

Roby joined the Texans on a one-year, $10 million contract last spring. He had two interceptions and eight pass breakups in 10 games (all starts) in 2019, missing time due to a hamstring injury.

A first-round pick of the Broncos in 2014, Roby played his first five seasons in Denver, collecting seven interceptions, 60 pass breakups and seven forced fumbles across 79 games (29 starts). He also won a Super Bowl title with the Broncos.

Roby played college football at Ohio State, redshirting in 2010 before starring for the Buckeyes from 2011 to 2013. He was a two-time All-Big Ten Conference selection and was an All-American in 2012, when he was the only defensive player in the nation to score touchdowns in three ways — interception, fumble recovery and blocked put.
