J.J. Watt, the 11th pick in the draft by the Texans, agreed to a contract on Sunday. Terms of the deal have not been announced.

The former Wisconsin star tweeted the news, writing, "Officially signed as a member of the Houston Texans! Can't wait to hit the field & get to work." Houston opens training camp today, so Watt did not miss any time.

Houston, switching to a 3-4 defense under new coordinator Wade Phillips, is expecting Watt to start right away at defensive end.

The team also announced the signing of CB Brandon Harris, meaning all the Texans' draft picks have signed. According to PFW correspondent and Houston Chronicle writer John McClain, Harris signed for $3.299 million with $1.559 million guaranteed. Watt's deal is worth $11.23 million, all guaranteed, with a $6.67 million signing bonus.
