Report: Texans agree on 3-year deal with top star with $52 million guaranteed

Texans and receiver Nico Collins agree on a three-year agreement with $52 million guaranteed.
Houston (AP) — On Tuesday, the Houston Texans and wide receiver Nico Collins agreed to a three-year contract deal for up to $75 million, with $52 million guaranteed.

The Athletic was the first to report on the transaction. Following a social media post detailing the specifics of Collins’ extension, agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed the terms negotiated by himself, Ryan Matha, and Jason Rosenhaus to The Associated Press.

The Houston Texans posted a photo of Collins on social media Tuesday afternoon, but there was no statement.

The 89th overall pick in 2021 out of Michigan is coming off his greatest season after the Texans selected C.J. Stroud with the second overall pick out of Ohio State. Collins, the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year, had a career-high 80 receptions for 1,297 yards and eight touchdowns.

This was better than his first two NFL seasons combined. Collins has 11 receptions for 164 yards and one touchdown in two postseason games for the AFC South champions.

This deal comes after Houston traded for veteran wide receiver Stefon Diggs and running back Joe Mixon.
