The Texans agreed to terms with first-round WR Will Fuller, according to Aaron Wilson.

Fuller, 22, was taken with the No. 21 overall pick after the Texans elected to swap spots with the Redskins. The expectation all along was that the Texans would address the receiver position in round, and Fuller gives them an interesting vertical threat to go along with star WR DeAndre Hopkins.

According to OverTheCap.com, Fuller receives a four-year contract worth $10,164,312 to go along with a signing bonus of $5,592,228. The contract will include a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2019.

During his three-year college career at Notre Dame, Fuller caught 144 passes for 2,512 yards receiving (17.4 YPR) and 30 touchdowns.
