The Texans agreed to terms with second-round draft choice John Metchie III, Aaron Wilson of profootballnetwork.com reports. Metchie will receive a four-year, $8.07 million deal that includes a $3.049 million signing bonus.

The Texans used the 44th overall choice on Metchie, trading a third-rounder and two fourth-rounders to move up to select the Alabama wideout.

Metchie is rehabbing the anterior cruciate ligament he tore in the SEC Championship Game.

“As far as the recovery, I will be good to play football in July. I will be good to go, no training wheels,” Metchie said after the draft. “I have been running already for the last couple months. Cutting, jumping, doing all those types of things. When I say I will be ready to go in July, it’s full-go football.”

Metchie caught 96 passes for 1,142 yards and eight touchdowns last season.

  1. Cults do weird things. You know there’s some sort of strange angle here.

  2. Imagine being super stoked about making it to the NFL, Getting super excited on draft night only to find out u have been drafted by the Texans of all teams. The let down must of been crushing, I’m sorry John.

  3. As much as I don’t love watching Caserio take prototypical patriot players like Metchie… I have to admit Davis Mills is a good qb and despite how WEIRD Houston’s front off is – the Texans could end up competing soon
