CelebNSports247.com previously reported that quarterback Deshaun Watson signed a four-year, $160 million contract extension with the Houston Texans on Saturday.
We first told you back when the conversation started and now here we are.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the terms of the deal. It’s the second-largest pact in NFL history, behind only Patrick Mahomes’ 12-year, $503 million dollar contract.
Following the signing, Watson confirmed an agreement had been reached in a statement on Twitter.

Watson, 24, led the Texans to the AFC South title and a divisional-round playoff appearance in 2019. His efforts in the Wild Card Round catapulted Houston past the Buffalo Bills despite a 16-0 second-half deficit.
Watson has been sensational in a Texans uniform, completing 66.8 percent of his passes for 71 touchdowns with 29 interceptions in three seasons. He’s also rushed for 1,233 yards on 217 attempts with 14 more scores.
The Texans traded up with the Cleveland Browns to select him, and that move has turned out to be one of the best draft-day deals in recent memory. – BleacherReport
