Report: Texans sign TE C.J. Fiedorowicz to three-year, $21 million extension

The Houston Texans and tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz are in the process of finalizing a three-year deal that would pay him an average of $7 million per season, according to a report by Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Fiedorowicz had said during training camp that he hoped he could “get something good” due to his performance. The fourth-year tight end was slated to earn $1.8 million under his rookie contract.

Fiedorowicz put up career-bests across the board in 2016, tallying 54 catches for 559 yards and four touchdowns. We will see if Fiedorowicz will continue to build on those numbers with a new quarterback (or two, possibly) under center this year.

Either way, Fiedorowicz is surely happy the Texans want to keep him around for another three seasons.
