Cornerback Bradley Roby agreed to terms on a one-year, $10 million deal with the Texans. He said he turned down a three-year offer from the Steelers and a one-year deal from the 49ers.

Roby also told Mike Klis of Denver’s 9News the Browns had interest “for a while.”

“It’s a prove-it deal,” Roby said of his contract with the Texans. “I feel like I should go back in [the market next year] while I’m still young.”

Roby, 26, spent his first five seasons with the Broncos. He made 50 tackles, an interception, 12 pass breakups and two forced fumbles in 15 games last season.

He has never made the Pro Bowl, having become a full-time starter last season.

The Broncos signed Kareem Jackson, who had spent his entire career in Houston, to replace Roby. Roby said he never received an offer from the Broncos.

“It’s a business,” Roby said. “Denver didn’t want me; they wanted someone else. . . .They got the guy they wanted.”

  1. At least this indicates Pittsburgh is finally attempting to address the defensive backfield.

  2. I love what Roby’s doing, even though his agent might have advised against it. He knows he’s a stud CB. He’s still young. Denver has been a lost cause the last few years, so it’s hard to judge a player by what’s going on up there. Roby obviously has confidence in his ability. Next year he’ll sign a 5 year $80 million deal. That’s what he’s talking about.

  3. Roby was on a one year prove it deal last year. First chance at starting as a top 2 CB on the Broncos and it didn’t go well.
    He is best as a number 3 CB on an NFL team.
