Veteran defensive end Jerry Hughes was re-signed by the Texans, Aaron Wilson of KPRC in Houston reports.

The Sugar Land native, a former Indianapolis Colts first-round draft pick from TCU, is entering his third season with the defending AFC South champions.

Hughes, 35, has recorded 479 career tackles, 70 sacks, 19 forced fumbles, two interceptions, two touchdowns and five fumble recoveries.

Signed to a two-year, $10 million contract two years ago that includes $5.5 million guaranteed, Hughes, a Stephen F. Austin graduate, revitalized his career two seasons ago. His playing time dipped last season under new coach DeMeco Ryans. He appeared in 17 games with two starts and recorded one forced fumble and three sacks with 32 tackles after finishing with nine sacks and 10 tackles for losses and 10 quarterback hits in 2022 playing for former Texans coach Lovie Smith.

“It felt fun,” Hughes told KPRC 2 last year. “I don’t know if it was just being home or being around the people I grew up with or being in a comfortable environment with me being back home. It was great to get those sacks and get that rolling. It recharged me, revamped me and I’ve been looking at the sack totals, man.
