Houston Texans reportedly sign Draft pick, Pitt quarterback Tom Savage to four-year contract worth $2.52 million

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Former Pitt quarterback Tom Savage was taken by the Houston Texans in the fourth round of last week's NFL Draft on Saturday. Less than a week later, it looks like he could officially be an NFL quarterback.

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported that Savage and the team have come to terms on a contract:

Schefter didn't disclose the terms but the Houston Chronicle says he received a four-year deal worth a little over $2.5 million with a signing bonus of about $300,000.

So, yeah, that was quick - less tan a week, actually, since he was selected last weekend. Plus, these things haven't been taking all that long. Players have been signing all week so Savage is hardly the first to come to terms with his new NFL team. A holdout wasn't likely, obviously, but it's good to see Savage sign so quickly. The sooner he gets on board, the less it becomes a distraction for him.
