Okoye Contract Details

Houston Texans DT Amobi Okoye

As noted late Thursday evening, the Houston Texans reached a six-year contract agreement, which can void to five, with first-round pick DT Amobi Okoye.

Okoye's agents Darin Morgan and Ian Greengross weren't available to confirm the details but a league source tells us that Okoye's contract contains $12.785 million in guarantees, representing a 12.6% increase from last year, with a total maximum package of $17.6 million. The $12.785 guarantee is impressive in that it is comparable to the guarantee given last year to the 10th pick, Matt Leinart, who signed a longer deal (six years) and presumably got a "quarterback premium."

As pointed out previously, if Okoye voids the final year of his deal, he would become an unrestricted free agent at just 24 years old.
