The Houston Texans and free-agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick have agreed to a two-year, $7.5 million deal, The Houston Chronicle's John McClain reported Thursday. According to McClain, $4.5 million of the $7.5 million is guaranteed.

The 31-year-old Fitzpatrick started nine games last season with the Tennessee Titans, and he has been a starter with the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals. In 11 games with the Titans last season, Fitzpatrick completed 62 percent of his passes, throwing 14 touchdowns to 12 interceptions.

His signing is further indication that the Texans don't plan to bring back Matt Schaub, whom the team is looking to trade. The Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders have been mentioned as potential suitors for Schaub. The Texans are expected to take a quarterback early in the 2014 NFL Draft — perhaps with the No. 1 overall pick.
