There was no drama in signing the first overall pick in the NFL draft this season. The Texans have reached an agreement with outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney on a 4-year contract. The Houston Chronicle's John McClain was first to report the news.

Shortly after, the terms of the deal were released.

Eric Fisher, the 2013 first overall pick, signed a $22.19 million, 4-year deal with $14.518 million guaranteed last season. That means there was a slight increase for the Texans' newly drafted outside linebacker. With the deal behind him, Clowney will be back at work next week as the Texans begin their third week of organized team activities.

Clowney's signing leaves only offensive guard and second round draft pick Xavier Su'a-Filo unsigned.
