Will Fuller, Texans agree on four-year, $10.2M deal

The Houston Texans have agreed to terms with the player they hope will compliment DeAndre Hopkins.

Will Fuller and the team agreed to a four-year, $10.2 million contract, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, per a source informed of the deal. The contract includes the standard fifth-year team option for first-round draft picks.

Houston selected Fuller No. 21 overall out of Notre Dame.

The speedy wide receiver is expected to provide a spark to the Texans' downfield passing attack. Fuller ran the fastest 40-yard dash time at the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine at 4.32. The six-foot receiver does need to work on his hands. Fuller logged nine drops in each of the last two seasons at Notre Dame.

It will be interesting to see who earns more playing time in Houston between Fuller and third-round pick Braxton Miller.

With Fuller's agreement, the Texans have now struck deals with all of their draft selections.

San Diego Chargers DE Joey Bosa, San Francisco 49ers G Joshua Garnett and New York Jets LB Darron Lee are the only first-round picks who have not locked up deals.
