After an offseason full of uncertainty, the Houston Texans will have quarterback Deshaun Watson for the foreseeable future. It has been reported that the two sides have agreed on a four-year, $160 million extension. In total, there is expected to be $111 million in guaranteed money and a $27 million signing bonus.
Watson, who was viewed as an NFL MVP candidate in 2018, has led the Texans to the playoffs in each of the last two seasons. He has totaled 9,716 passing yards, 71 touchdowns, and 29 interceptions across his first three seasons in the NFL.
In April, the team signed offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil to a three-year, $66 million extension. As a result, most believed that an extension for Watson would become imminent. Despite the delayed contract talks, Watson still has expectations to lead a Texans offense that is without star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
