The Houston Texans still hit a large agreement on Monday. The Texans and rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud have agreed to a fully guaranteed four-year deal that will fill his pockets and bank account to just over $36 million. The deal includes a $23.38 million signing bonus, which will be paid in its entirety upfront. Talk about securing the bag as a rookie. Stroud, the No. 2 overall pick in this year's NFL draft, joins fellow first-rounder Will Anderson Jr. among the Texans' additions to sign their rookie contracts. Anderson, the third overall pick and a two-time SEC Defensive Player of the Year at Alabama, signed a fully guaranteed four-year deal worth $35.2 million last month.

With Stroud officially on payroll, the focus will be on him for the starting quarterback job. Given the praise Stroud has received from players and coaches this offseason, as well as Houston's decision to take him with the No. 2 overall pick, it's difficult to envision the organization going in another direction when Week 1 arrives. Davis Mills' last season struggles played a key intricate part in the Texans deciding to lockdown a quarterback at the top of the draft. 

With training camp just around the corner, fans will get to see Stroud in battle red colors taking snaps. The 2023 season is set to be VERY interesting season with a new and MUCH desired head coach along with the total roster restructure on the team. #BullsOnParade indeed in the up coming weeks.
