The Texans are taking the field for a rookie minicamp today, and they might have everybody signed before the get there.

Via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans have signed first-rounder DeShaun Watson, along with  second-round linebacker Zach Cunningham and fifth-round cornerback Treston Decoud.

Earlier in the day they reached deals with their two fourth-rounders, and only third-round running back D’Onta Foreman lacks a deal at the moment.

Watson’s going to have a chance to compete with Tom Savage for the starting job this year, though they’d probably prefer to give him time to develop.

But after trading a future first-rounder to get him, and floundering in recent years with a great defense and average-at-best quarterback play, the pressure to play him will be significant.
