Texans sign Deshaun Watson and two more picks

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.

    I can’t believe I’m the only one who thinks Watson looks like Carlton from Fresh Prince in that pic.

    Really hope Watson and his noodle arm win the race to be starter.

    The Texans are the Southern version of the Browns.
