Matt Schaub Excited To Finish His Career In Houston

Matt Schaub has been a great quarterback for the Houston Texans since they picked him up in 2007 from the Atlanta Falcons, and he is now just about guaranteed to spend the rest of his time in the NFL playing for the Texans. They signed Schaub to a four-year, $64 million contract extension following the Texans' win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 1 of NFL action.

Schaub was quoted on the Texans official website, saying he is very excited to finish his career with the team that he has excelled with the past several seasons:

"I’m excited to continue my career here in Houston and finish my career here," Schaub said. "We have a tremendous organization, an owner (Bob McNair) that really owner that really cares about us as players and providing an environment to win, and I am extremely excited about that."

The Texans have gotten great numbers out of Schaub in his time with the team, as he currently ranks in the top 10 in most quarterbacking numbers since he became the team's starter. Most of the details of the 31-year-old's new contract have not been released by Houston.

Matt Schaub Signs 4-Year Contract Extension With Texans, Per Report

The Houston Texans and quarterback Matt Schaub have agreed on a 4-year, $64 million contract extension, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Schaub will receive a guaranteed $30 million.

Schaub led the Texans to a season-opening 30-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, completing 20 of 31 passes for 266 yards and a touchdown. With the win, Schaub is 33-32 in five-plus seasons as Houston's starting quarterback. In 2011, Schaub missed six games, but the Texans were 7-3 in his starts, allowing them to get a good head start on making the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. Schaub threw for over 4,000 yards in each of the two seasons prior to that, including a league-leading 4,770 yards in 2009.

Schaub was set to become a free agent after the season, and as recently Aug. 27, it was reported that an in-season extension would not get done for the 31-year-old quarterback.
