Per Mark Berman of FOX 26, the Houston Texans signed Matt Schaub to a four-year extension worth $62 million, with $24.7 million of that guaranteed. Houston is now locked into Schaub long-term, and despite his tendency to miss games, they're probably going to need a quarterback of his caliber to have a realistic hope of winning a Super Bowl. Hard to argue with re-signing him based on that logic, but this is riskier than most long-term extensions for good quarterbacks.
