Houston linebacker Benardrick McKinney has agreed to a very lucrative contract extension. 

 

The team announced the big news Thursday, as the new deal is worth $50 million over five years with $21 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

 

"Benardrick plays a key role in our defense and has been highly productive, but more importantly he is a core player who has developed into a team leader within our program," general manager Brian Gaine said in a statement released by the team. "We are excited to have him a part of our lo future here at the Texans."

Houston has become my home. Now the focus is on winning in 2018! Htown stand up!!

Taking to social media, McKinney, a second-round draft pick in 2015, shared the exciting news with a photo of him signing on the dotted on the line. 

 

"Blessed to sign a contract extension with the Texans and continue playing for this great organization," he wrote alongside the picture. "Houston has become my home. Now the focus is on winning in 2018! Htown stand up!!"

 

McKinney has emerged as a huge asset to the Texans. He leads the team with 95 tackles, including a career-high 10 for loss, last season, according to the NFL network. He has recorded 282 total tackles (176 solo), 9.0 sacks, 25 tackles for loss, 21 quarterback hits, two forced fumbles and three defended passes in 46 games over the past three years.

So its with some kind of pleasure to report that Foo Fighters have finally made an album that sounds like itself, at least for a good chunk, as Concrete and Gold has a psychedelic, prog-metal feel for its opening bid that plays like an omnivore as privileged as Grohl finally got tired of making his Rolodex the story over the music itself.
