Another Pro Bowler signs with AFC South Champs
The Houston Texans signed free agent punter Shane Lechler, the same day Pro Bowl defensive back Ed Reeds also inked a deal to join the team.
Lechler is a native of East Bernard, who played college football at Texas A&M. He was drafted by the Raiders in 2000. The seven-time Pro Bowler lives in Houston during the offseason.
While Reed’s signing makes up for the loss of free agent Glover Quin to the Lions, Lechler will likely displace current punter Donnie Brown.
