The first member of the 2022 Texans draft class has signed his rookie deal.
Well that was fast. Per Aaron Wilson, the Texans have signed rookie DB out of Baylor, Jalen Pitre, to a four year contract.
Texans have agreed to terms on second-round safety Jalen Pitre contract: $8.954 million, including $3.692 million signing bonus, base salaries or $705,000, $1.112 million, $1.519 million $1.926 million

Pitre, 22, was selected by the Texans in the second round as part of their attempt to rebuild a secondary that was badly starved for talent. In related news, Pitre will wear number 42 when he takes the field later this year.
