Report: Former Notre Dame WR Will Fuller Agrees To Rookie Contract With Houston Texans

Former Notre Dame star and 2016 Houston Texans first-round pick Will Fuller has agreed to terms on a rookie contract with the club, according to the Houston Chronicle's Aaron Wilson

Per Wilson, Fuller's deal will be in excess of $10 million, including a $5.5 million signing bonus. 

Drafted 21st overall out of Notre Dame, Fuller is projected to sign a $10.164 million contract that includes a $5.592 million signing bonus and a first-year salary-cap figure of $1.848 million under the slotting principle governing rookie contracts in the collective bargaining agreement.

The deal includes the standard fifth-year team option for first-round draft picks

Fuller's contract is slightly higher than TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson, who was chosen one pick after him. Doctson received a $10,049,644 deal from the Washington Redskins, complete with $9.429 million in guarantees and a signing bonus of $5,508,832.

Fuller, who hauled in 144 passes for 2,512 yards and 30 touchdowns in three years in South Bend, is expected to have a big role in Houston's passing attack this season, alongside star WR DeAndre Hopkins and fellow rookie Braxton Miller.
