CB Desmond King joining Houston Texans on 1-year, $3.5 million deal

Cornerback Desmond King is joining the Houston Texans on a one-year, $3.5 million deal, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

King, who turned 26 in December, was acquired by the Tennessee Titans from the Los Angeles Chargers last November in exchange for a 2021 sixth-round pick. He made an immediate impact in his first game for the Titans, returning a fumble 63-yards for a touchdown against the Chicago Bears.

He finished the 2020 season with 31 tackles, a sack and a quarterback hit in nine games with the Titans.
