Texans extend Scarlett's contract through 2020 season

The Houston Texans announced Wednesday that they signed outside linebacker Brennan Scarlett to a one-year contract extension through the 2020 season.

The deal is worth $3.75 million, according to the Houston Chronicle. Scarlett is making $2.05 million in 2019.

Scarlett, 26, appears to be one of the starting outside linebackers at the outset of the season with Jadeveon Clowney away due to a contract dispute.

He has 54 tackles, two sacks and one interception in 30 games (eight starts) over three NFL seasons. He had 18 tackles and one interception in 12 games (three starts) last season.

Scarlett has also been a special teams player during his tenure with the Texans, logging 520 snaps in the third phase.

According to reports Tuesday, Clowney recently fired his agent and met with Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores.
