Texans re-sign DE Derek Barnett, LB Neville Hewitt

Derek Barnett Houston

The Houston Texans on Monday re-signed defensive end Derek Barnett and linebacker Neville Hewitt.

Both were unrestricted free agents. Financial terms were not disclosed on a pair of one-year deals, according to media reports.

The Texans had claimed Barnett off waivers on Nov. 27, three days after his release by the Philadelphia Eagles. He made four starts in six regular-season games for Houston, totaling 19 tackles, including 2.5 sacks and eight tackles for loss. Barnett, 27, also played in two playoff games (one start) and contributed seven tackles and one sack.

The Eagles selected Barnett 14th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Tennessee. He has 169 tackles, 24 sacks, 45 tackles for loss, 87 QB hits, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries (one for a touchdown) in 79 games (49 starts).

Hewitt, who turns 31 on Saturday, led the NFL in special teams tackles (14) last season with the Texans.

He has totaled 440 tackles, 7.5 sacks, three interceptions and two forced fumbles in 129 career games (44 starts) with the Miami Dolphins (2015-17), New York Jets (2018-20) and Texans (2021-23).

He entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2015 out of Marshall.
