The offensive line for the Houston Texans underwent a major overhaul this offseason. Nick Caserio signed five new linemen with the potential to improve what was a mediocre production from their front five last season. One of the players Caserio signed to assist with the change was former Seattle Seahawk, Justin Britt.

Following a near two-year hiatus, here’s what to expect from Britt ahead of the 2021 season with the Texans.

Oct. 27, 2019, marked the last time Britt appeared in an NFL game. He left the Seahawks' Week 8 victory over the Falcons due to an ACL injury that kept him sidelined for nearly two years. As Britt prepares for his return to the gridiron this fall, the Texans will give the 30-year-old offensive lineman the best chance of proving that he is still one of the league's most productive centers. Britt will be filling in the void at the position left by Nick Martin — who signed with the Raiders following his release by the Texans in February. Britt's best season of his career took place in 2016 when he received recognition as a Pro Bowl alternate at center. Britt did not allow a sack nor quarterback hit for the entire season amid playing in 994 snaps in 15 games. According to Pro Football Focus, Britt ended the year with an overall grade of 77.0 as an o-lineman, 77.9 in pass protection and 73.0 in run blocking.
