Shortly after announcing the signing of S Ed Reed, the Houston Texans added another free agent to their roster, punter Shane Lecher. Many fans don’t get excited about signing punters, but Texans fans should realize that Lechler is a weapon. He possesses the strongest leg in the punting game in the NFL and is the all-time career leader in punting average at 47.5 yards per punt.
Adam Schefter announced the move last evening on Twitter. “Former Raiders Pro-Bowl P Shane Lechler is signing a 3-year $5.5 million contract that includes $1 million signing bonus with Texans.”
Lechler is considered one of the best ever to play his position and is a seven time Pro Bowl selection and nine time All-Pro.
