NFL Betting: Cushing will stay six more years with the Texans
By Andrew Scott Monday, 9 September 2013 12:55
According to sources, linebacker Brian Cushing extended his contract with the Houston Texans for six more years, which locks up their defensive leader with the team through the 2019 season, and many NFL betting fans see this as great news. The contract is worth $55.643 million, including a guaranteed $21 million.
Price per head services saw that Cushing was going into the final season of the rookie contract that he signed in 2009 as the No. 15 overall pick. The contact’s timing is crucial – NFL betting fans know that the Texans don’t normally negotiate new deals once the season gets underway.
Cushing was not able to play for most of last season due to a torn ACL, suffering the injury in Week 5 in a game against the New York Jets after an illegal block by Jets guard Matt Slauson.
Price per head services remember that last season, after Cushing went down, Houston allowed at least 25 points in five of the 11 regular-season games that he didn’t play.
Cushing – an All-Pro in 2011 and a Pro Bowler in his rookie season – made 9.5 sacks and 238 tackles in 49 career regular-season games.
Cushing, who is a huge favourite with many NFL betting fans, is one of the centerpieces for Houston’s defence, that also includes cornerback Johnathan Joseph and reigning Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt.

A league source said that in order to free the salary cap space to sign the player, the team had to restructure receiver Andre Johnson’s deal, reducing this year a $10.5 million salary to $5 million in base salary, as well as $5.5 million in bonus payments, and pay per head services will continue to monitor this situation.
Price per head services and football betting fans that follow the Texans were very happy to learn that Cushing extended his contract with the team, and are very eager to see how he will continue to perform.
