J.J. Watt, Andre Johnson, DeAndre Hopkins, Duane Brown and Arian Foster are tabbed by Chris Simms and Ahmed Fareed as the Houston Texans' best 21st century non-QBs.

Last week brought word that the Texans and defensive tackle Maliek Collins agreed on a contract extension and it became official on Tuesday.

The Texans announced that Collins has signed his new pact. The deal is worth $23 million with base salaries of $8 million and $9.5 million.

Collins signed a two-year deal with the Texans in 2021 and has a $2 million base salary for the 2022 season.
