Texans Re-Sign QB Brandon Weeden To A Two-Year, $4M Deal


The Houston Texans have re-signed QB Brandon Weeden to a contract on Friday, according to John McClain.

  • Rand Getlin reports that Weeden receives a two-year, $4 million deal from the Texans.
  • McClain expects the Texans to now trade QB Brian Hoyer in the coming days.

Weeden visited with the Dolphins a few weeks ago, but left Miami without a contract.

Weeden will be their backup quarterback to Brock Osweiler, who signed a massive contract with the Texans at the start of free agency.

Weeden, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2012. He spent two years in Cleveland before he was cut in March of 2014 and later signed by the Cowboys. Dallas elected to waive Weeden mid-season, but he was later claimed off of waivers by the Texans after they cut Ryan Mallett.

He played out the final year of his two-year, $1.23 million rookie contract and was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

In 2015, Weeden threw for 1,044 yards while completing 69.3 percent of his passes to go along with five touchdowns and two interceptions over the course of six games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 21 quarterback out of 35 qualifying players.
