NFL Media's Rand Getlin noted that Miller will earn $6.5 million per year from the Texans. He could have signed elsewhere for $7 million per season, but Miller liked the situation in Houston better, Getlin was told.
Osweiler showed enough promise in Denver to give Texans fans hope under center. Miller, meanwhile, gives Houston a versatile and athletic runner who has yet to reach his potential. Both deals have the potential to be looked back upon with vitriol, but the Texans are swinging for the fences in a wide-open AFC South.
