The Texans have agreed to a 2-year deal with LB Kevin Pierre-Louis, worth "up to $8 million," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Pierre-Louis figures to compete with Christian Kirksey for work next to Zach Cunningham in a Houston defense that recently sent Benardrick McKinney to Miami. Tyrell Adams showed us last year that there's upside to the role, so we'll see how the situation plays out.
Washington LB Kevin Pierre-Louis is active for today's game against the Ravens. He turned up questionable because of an illness. His playing time dipped last week, but Pierre-Louis still played 80% of the snaps. He's not a high-level IDP option but in play still for deeper leagues.
