One of the key contributors at tight end will be staying in Houston. On Monday, the Texans announced that they re-signed Ryan Griffin. The move was first reported on Saturday by ESPN’s Sarah Barshop and Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle but was not officially announced by the team until Monday. Per Wilson, the deal is for three years and $9 million.
OFFICIAL: The #Texans have re-signed TE Ryan Griffin.

Griffin had one of his best seasons in the NFL, catching 50 passes for 442 yards and two touchdowns. He, along with fellow tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz, created a solid tight end tandem for the Texans offense in 2016 thanks to now-former starting quarterback Brock Osweiler and his tendency to favor shorter passes.
With Griffin now under a new contract, the Texans will have a steady target back at tight end for whoever starts under center in 2017 for Houston.
