The *Houston Chronicle *is reporting that the Texans have signed kicker Kris Brown to a four-year contract extension.
Per team policy, no transactions are official until they are announced by the team.
Last season, Brown set franchise records in points (124), field goals (29) and field goal percentage (87.9). His career-high field goal percentage was tied for second best in the AFC.
A 10-year veteran, Brown signed with the Texans before the team's inaugural 2002 season as a restricted free agent from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Along with guard Chester Pitts, Brown is one of two players to have appeared in every game in franchise history.
He is the Texans' all-time leading scorer with 661 points.
