Houston Texans agree to multi-year deal with Brock Osweiler

A person familiar with the negotiations says the Houston Texans have agreed to a multiyear contract with free agent quarterback Brock Osweiler.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because free-agent deals can't be finalized until later Wednesday.

The Texans were looking for an upgrade at the position after Brian Hoyer's struggles last season, particularly his turnover-filled performance in their wild-card playoff loss to Kanas City.

Osweiler appeared in eight games with seven starts last season for the Super Bowl champion Broncos. The 6-foot-7, 240-pound player spent the first four years of his career with the Broncos after being drafted in the second round in 2012 out of Arizona State.

He threw for a career-high 1,967 yards and 10 touchdowns with six interceptions last season.

Osweiler's decision comes two days after Peyton Manning retired from the Broncos.
