HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans have tendered offers to Pro Bowl middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans and six other restricted free agents.
Ryans, the 2006 Defensive Rookie of Year, had 123 tackles and a sack last season.
Pollard joined the team in late September and immediately stepped into a starting role to become a key piece of Houston's improving defense. He had 102 tackles, 1½ sacks and four interceptions to help the Texans to their first winning season.
Daniels was one of the top receiving tight ends in the league before tearing a knee ligament in November. He had 40 catches for 519 yards and five touchdowns in eight games last season.
