Free-agent cornerback Brice McCain says he's agreed to a three-year deal to return to the Houston Texans.

The 5-foot-9 McCain announced the deal on Twitter late Tuesday and thanked his agent, David Canter.

McCain was a sixth-round draft pick by the Texans in 2009. He played in 12 games with two starts last season before breaking his left foot in a Dec. 2 game against Tennessee. McCain finished last season with 24 tackles, an interception and eight passes defensed.
