Texans have no plans to re-sign Watt, but that could change soon The Texans haven’t signed Watt yet, but they might.

NFL.com’s Ian Rapaport said Watt’s representatives will meet with the Texans this week and try to finalize a deal.
Rapapiport also reported that Watt has a $2.5 million base salary.
The Texans already paid the first-round pick in 2018 and the third-rounder in 2019, so it would be easy to sign him to a contract similar to what they paid the second-rounder.
But with Watt’s market value on the rise and no clear way to replace him with a new contract, it might be worth waiting for another team to offer him a big payday.
