Texans sign former Pro Bowl LB Cory Littleton

Littleton spent last season with the Carolina Panthers.

The Houston Texans have reached an agreement to sign linebacker Cory Littleton, according to Aaron Wilson of KPRC2 Houston. The deal is for one year and up to $2.7 million.

Littleton, 29, will be joining his fourth team as he enters his eighth season in the league. Originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Los Angeles Rams, he played his first four seasons in LA, where he became a Pro Bowler and was named Second Team All-Pro in 2018. After a strong 2019 season that saw him rack up 134 tackles, two interceptions, nine passes defended, two forced fumbles, and four fumble recoveries, he signed a three-year, $36 million deal with the Las Vegas Raiders.

After two seasons in Las Vegas, he was a cap casualty and signed last season on a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Panthers. He played in 15 games, starting seven. He finished with 47 tackles, including two passes defended and a half-sack.
