Houston Texans second-round draft choice WR John Metchie agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Texans Friday, May 13, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Metchie is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament but appears to have a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2022 season. He probably will be a top-three receiver for the Texans as a rookie and can be a late round pick in fantasy drafts.

Houston Texans second-round draft choice John Metchie (Alabama) is expected to return from his torn anterior cruciate ligament at some point during the 2022 season, but head coach Lovie Smith admitted Friday, May 13, that the team is still ''in the process'' of finding out where he is in his recovery. Smith noted the Texans expect to have a better idea about Metchie's recovery in a couple of weeks.
Huddle Up: The relative pessimism surrounding Metchie's recovery is a bit surprising for multiple reasons, one of which has to do with former college teammate Jameson Williams, who suffered the same injury a month later than Metchie and is reportedly on track for the season opener. When Metchie is fully healthy, he figures to see playing time immediately in the slot while Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins live on the perimeter.
