QB Brock Osweiler signs $72 million deal with Texans

HOUSTON (AP) - Brock Osweiler signed his four-year, $72 million deal with the Houston Texans on Thursday, making the quarterback with all of seven NFL starts one of the league's highest-paid players.

Osweiler agreed to leave the Denver Broncos when free agency began, leaving a pending starting job with the Super Bowl champions to become Houston's quarterback.

The Texans who were looking to upgrade the position after Brian Hoyer's struggles last season, particularly his turnover-filled performance in their wild-card playoff loss to Kansas City.

Houston also added running back Lamar Miller, center Tony Bergstrom and guard Jeff Allen in free agency, and re-signed tackle Chris Clark, punter Shane Lechler and kicker.
