Aaron Wilson reports that the Eagles still aren’t considered to be a serious suitor for CB A.J. Bouye at this point in time, but admits that things could change.
ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting that the Texans are concerned about the possibility of losing free agent Texans CB A.J. Bouye to the Eagles. Werder adds that counter offer from the Texans is expected to come at some point today.
Bouye wasn’t franchised by the Texans and is now one of the best available players this year’s free agent market. Some estimates have Bouye securing over $12 million per year in a long-term contract.
His market reportedly consists of the Texans, Eagles, Titans, Jaguars, Colts, 49ers and Browns.
Bouye, 25, wound up signing on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of UCF back in 2013. He returned to the Texans on a one-year, $1.671 million restricted contract this past March and is now in position to be one of the most sought after players in next year’s market.
In 2016, Bouye has appeared 15 games and recorded 63 tackles, one sack, an interception and 16 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 5 cornerback out of 115 qualifying players.
