Free agent quarterback Jeff Driskel signed with the Houston Texans on May 19.

The former San Francisco 49ers 2016 sixth-round pick signed a one-year contract with a maximum value of $2.5 million.

According to Aaron Wilson of SportsTalk 790, Driskel chose the Texans over the Jacksonville Jaguars, who he was scheduled to visit. Driskel had recently visited with the Dallas Cowboys.

Driskel’s contract comes with a $1 million base salary with $500,000 guaranteed and a $250,000 signing bonus.

The former Louisiana Tech product joins a crowded Texans quarterback room that already has Deshaun Watson, Tyrod Taylor, Ryan Finley, and third-round rookie Davis Mills on the roster.

Driskel started one game for the Denver Broncos last season, going 0-1 in the process and throwing three touchdowns and two interceptions.
