Familiar faces who resigned with their perspective teams

3 Big NFL names who ended up re-upping with their teams!

Lermy Tunsil has been brought back by the Texans!

The Houston Texans extend tackle Laremy Tunsil. Tuneup agreed to terms on a new three year extension for 75 million with 50 million guaranteed at signing. He is now the highest paid tackle in the NFL. After the season ended, Tunsil stated that he wanted to be the highest paid tackle in the NFL. The former 13th overall pick was almost traded if the Texans would have not been able to sign Tunsil to a new extension. According to reports, the Chiefs almost traded for Tunsil, but after he re-upped with the Texans, they were not able to come to terms with Orlando Brown, JR. Last season, Tunsil finished with an 80.0 by Pro Football Focus and only allowed one sack and 11 pressures. The Texans ended up drafting QB CJ Stroud with the number two pack, and now the rookie will have one of the best offensive tackles protecting him.

Harrison Smith returning to the Vikings

The Vikings have made a significant move to shore up their defense by re-signing safety Harrison Smith. The Vikings have restructured his contract, keeping him on the team for another year. Smith was set to enter the final year of his previous contract, but with this new deal, he will remain a Viking through the 2023 season. Under the terms of the new contract, Smith will receive $15.3 million in cash, which will count against 19.1 million under the cap. The new deal gives the team some flexibility as they work to rebuild their defense. Smith has been a stalwart for the Vikings since 2012, earning five Pro Bowl selections and two First-Team All-Pro honors. He was once widely regarded as one of the NFL's top safeties and has been an integral part of the Vikings' defense for years. This restructured contract allows the Vikings to keep one of their key defensive players for at least one more year. The Vikings did give Smith permission to seek other opportunities around the league as he considered a reduced contract offer. Eventually, Smith ended up resigning with the Vikings. Overall, this move by the Vikings to retain Harrison Smith for another year is a smart one. He remains a valuable asset to the team, and his experience and leadership will be crucial as the Vikings have a very young defense.

He is a young, talented linebacker who has already proven himself on the field.The Cowboys' decision to re-sign Vander Esch shows that they believe in his abilities and see him as a key part of their future.
