HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The Houston Texans made a big splash in free agency on Wednesday with the announcements of a quarterback, running back and offensive lineman.

QB Brock Osweiler, RB Lamar Miller and lineman Jeff Allen are all coming to Houston, and while it may be a big boost to the Texans offense, at least one out-of-work quarterback is apparently taking a shot at the deal for Houston's new signal-caller.

Osweiler's deal is for four years and $72 million. As part of Osweiler's contract, he will receive $37 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN's Ed Werder.

Former NFL quarterback Matt Flynn tweeted, 'Wow I know I'm going to get killed for this and I don't have a lot of room to talk, but this latest QB contract is unbelievable........'

What Flynn means by 'no room to talk' is that he, too, once landed a massive contract without having much starting experience. And now he's out of the NFL. Flynn inked a deal with Seattle in 2012 for three-years and $26 million.

The Twitter conversation didn't end there.

What do you think? Is it an unbelievable contract for Osweiler or is it what you think he deserves?
