Brian Cushing signs big extension

The Houston Texans' defensive core solidified quite a bit Tuesday. That's because the franchise, fresh off a 12-4 season and with eyes on bigger things, inked star linebacker Brian Cushing to a six-year, $55.643 million extension, with $21 million guaranteed. It's being hailed as a good move for a team whose defense struggled at times after Cushing went down with an ACL injury early last season. Then again, that very injury could slow the 26-year-old going forward.
