According to multiple reports, former Nebraska running back Rex Burkhead has reached an agreement to sign with the Houston Texans of the NFL. Houston’s general manager is Nick Caserio, the New England Patriots’ director of player personnel when Burkhead joined there as a free agent in 2017. Burkhead spent four seasons with the Patriots and won a Super bowl two years ago. He’s coming off a season-ending knee injury he suffered playing against the Texans in November. Burkhead will be entering his ninth NFL season in 2021.
