Jeff Driskel is another addition to the Houston Texas football team, who earned a $2.5 million deal for a year, as NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported. Houston’s team now consists of Tyrod Taylor, Davis Mills, Ryan Finley, Deshaun Watson, and Jeff Driskel.
However, Watson might be in big trouble this year, as he is currently facing 22 lawsuits due to sexual assaults and misconduct. The investigation was initiated on April 2 by the Houston Police Department. As a result, the National Football League is also doing its course to find the truth. Before this issue emerged, Watson’s relationship with the team is also questionable.
Meanwhile, Jeff Driskel will be joining his 4th team this season after spending a reasonable amount of time with the Bengals, Lions, and the Broncos. The 28-year-old quarterback had a record of 3 touchdowns and 432 yards in 3 games with Denver. His deal also comes with a $1 million base salary, $250,000 signing bonus, $750 playtime incentives, and $500,000 roster bonuses. He’ll also earn an additional $300,000 if he hits 30-40% snaps.
As of now, Driskel will be traveling to Texas on Thursday night to visit the Cowboys, according to the Dallas Morning News. Gehlkhen noted that adding Driskel on the team is already a good sign, and he is expected to become the team’s favorite, alongside Dak Prescott.
This is already a pretty good deal for the young quarterback, and as Texas owns five quarterbacks on the roster, they’re expecting to do great this season.
