Texans re-sign WR Jones, T Butler

July 27, 2011

The Houston Texans have agreed to terms with free agent receiver Jacoby Jones and tackle Rashad Butler.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Jones caught 51 passes for 562 yards in 2010, his fourth season with Houston. Jones also was the Texans' top punt returner, averaging seven yards on 29 returns.

The 6-4, 308-pound Butler played in all 16 games last season. He started four games at left tackle when regular starter Duane Brown served a suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

The Houston Chronicle and KRIV-TV first reported the agreements. Jones' agent, Kennard McGuire confirmed Jones' deal and a person familiar with Butler's deal confirmed his agreement early Wednesday.
