The Houston Texans have signed first-round CB Derek Stingley Jr. to a four-year contract, according to Ian Rapoport.
The Texans have now signed all but three of their 2022 draft picks:
|1||Derek Stingley Jr.||CB||Signed|
|2||John Metchie III||WR|
Stingley, 20, was a three-year starter at LSU. He was a first-team All-American and first-team All-SEC selection as a sophomore but missed time during his junior season due to a Lisfranc injury. The Texans used the No. 3 overall pick on him in the 2022 draft.
Lance Zierlein compares him to Colts CB Stephon Gilmore.
He’s projected to sign a four-year, $34,657,529 contract that includes a $22,385,476. There is also a fifth-year option for the team to pick up in 2025.
During his three-year college career, Stingley recorded 73 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, six interceptions, 20 pass defenses, two fumble recoveries, and two forced fumbles.
