Report: Texans reach deal with C.J. Fiedorowicz


The Texans have reportedly struck a deal with the first pick of the third round.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans have come to terms with tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz on a four-year contract.

The No. 65 overall pick, the 6-foot-5, 265-pound Fiedorowicz caught 91 passes for 899 yards and 10 touchdowns in four seasons at the University of Iowa (2010-2013). The Texans’ only 2014 draft pick at his position, Fiedorowicz figures to be no worse than the third tight end behind veterans Garrett Graham and Ryan Griffin.

“I’ll do whatever they ask in the blocking game. I did a lot of that at Iowa. I’m going to prove to the Texans that I can be a receiving player as well,” Fiedorowicz said after he was drafted, according to the club.

The Texans have reached deals with 8-of-10 draft picks. Linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, the No. 1 overall pick, remains unsigned, as does second-round pick Xavier Su’a-Filo, a guard from UCLA.
