The Houston Texans and quarterback Case Keenum have agreed on a two-year, $6.25 million contract, a person familiar with the contract told The Associated Press.
The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal can’t be announced until Wednesday, said the deal included $4 million guaranteed.
Keenum spent last season backing up Josh Allen in Buffalo. He’s 29-35 as a starter in 10 seasons with seven teams. Keenum started his career with the Texans in 2013, going 0-8 that season.
Keenum had a career year with Minnesota in 2017, leading the Vikings to an 11-3 record in 14 starts and helping them reach the NFC championship game.
Keenum has completed 62.3% of his passes for 14,884 yards, 78 touchdowns and 48 interceptions in 78 games.
The Texans own the No. 2 pick in the draft and are expected to select a quarterback. —
