The addition of Driskel gives Houston more depth given the uncertainty about Watson’s future with the team. Watson, who asked for a deal in January, faces 22 civil lawsuits for sexual assault and improper conduct.
Driskel spent the 2020 season with the Denver Broncos but was released by the team earlier this month.
Driskel’s one-year contract has a base salary of $ 1 million with a $ 250,000 signing bonus and bonuses for playing time and for being on Texan’s 46-man list, according to his agents.
Last year with Driskel, Denver made three appearances, completing 54.7% of its passes for 432 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions.
