The Texans have signed fifth-round rookie linebacker Garret Wallow to a four-year, $3.775 million rookie contract, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.
That includes a $295,884 signing bonus.
A two-time All-Big 12 Conference selection, Wallow had 287 career tackles, 32 ½ for losses and 9 ½ sacks.
Wallow ran the 40-yard dash in 4.65 seconds at the Horned Frogs’ campus Pro Day workout where he bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times and had a 32 ½ inch vertical leap, a 10-2 broad jump, a 4.12 short shuttle and a 6.87 three-cone drill.
Wallow had 90 tackles last season, including nine for losses and three sacks, five quarterback hits and three forced fumbles.
