The Denver Broncos announced that they have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with DL Jared Crick.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Crick receives a two-year, $4 million deal from the Texans.
- John McClain reports that Crick had an offer from the Texans, but he wanted more money and Houston is likely to consider taking a defensive end high in this year’s draft.

There was some talk that Crick could return to the Texans before the start of free agency. However, there was very little buzz about him before he raeched an agreement with Denver.
Crick, 26, was taken in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL draft. He played out his four-year, $2,491,500 rookie contract, which included a base salary of $1,542,000 this season.
In 2015, Crick appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and recorded 48 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble, two recoveries and two pass defenses for the Texans. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 52 defensive end in a 3-4 defense out of 57 qualifying players.
