Source: Texans, Zach Fulton agree to reworked 2-year deal

The Houston Texans have agreed to a renegotiated deal with starting right guard Zach Fulton, a source told ESPN on Friday.

Fulton remains under contract through 2021. Under the new deal, Fulton will get financial security that likely ensures he sticks around on the roster this season, while Houston gets cap relief and pays him a deal more commensurate with his performance.


The deal calls for Fulton to receive a $1.5 million signing bonus, a $2.5 million base salary in 2020 (guaranteed) and a $1 million bonus for being on the 90-man roster. In 2021, he will make $2 million base salary in addition to a $1 million bonus for being on the 90-man roster.

He was previously due $7 million in each of the next two seasons, with no guaranteed money.
