C.J. Stroud Contract – How Much Will he be Earning in his Rookie Year?

C.J. Stroud, a professional American Football player, will be the starting quarterback for the Houston Texans during the upcoming season. The Texans selected Stroud with the second-best pick in the NFL Draft 2023 after much speculation. Stroud was a top signal-caller with the Ohio State Buckeyes in the last two years.

C.J. Stroud was a 4-star recruit when he joined Ohio State’s QB room in 2020. He learned from Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields his playbook during his first year.

Stroud was the Buckeyes’ starting quarterback after Justin Fields joined the NFL in 2021. He immediately impressed everyone. Stroud completed 71.9 percent (4435 yards) of his passes during the 2021 college season. He also had 44 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions.

Stroud’s impressive numbers helped him finish 4th in 2021 Heisman voting. Stroud’s numbers dropped during his senior season at Ohio State. He only recorded 3688 yards, 41 touchdowns and completed 66.3% passes. He still came in second place for the 2022 Heisman vote.

After two successful seasons with the Buckeyes C.J. Stroud, after hearing a lot about rumors in February, declared for the NFL Draft 2023. The Texans drafted him and he will likely start in the first week of the 2023 NFL season.

C.J. Stroud’s current contracts breakdown

C.J. Stroud was drafted as the second overall pick by the Houston Texans in the NFL Draft 2023. Stroud’s deal is expected to be worth $39 379 587. Stroud still hasn’t signed a rookie contract.

Sportrac reports that C.J. Stroud’s deal will be worth a massive $39,379 587. The estimated signing bonus will be around $25,639 699, and the deal will have a cap of approximately $7,159 925 in 2023.

Soon, the talented quarterback will sign a 4-year rookie deal with the Texans. We will know his exact salary once he signs the contract. Stroud’s rookie contract is expected to fall in the range of a four-year deal worth approx $39 million, as per the rookie salary scale.

Will C.J. Will C.J.

Houston Texans roster currently has one veteran quarterback. C.J. Stroud is not the only player on the Texans’ depth chart. They also have former second-round draft pick Davis Mills, and veteran QB Case Keenum.

Only C.J. Stroud would have to compete with Davis Mills for the role of starting quarterback. Keenum is likely to be the third-string quarterback for the Texans this season.

So, C.J. Stroud has a good chance of starting for the Texans during the first week of the regular season in 2023. The Texans front office may decide to keep him on the bench for the first few weeks of the upcoming regular season. Stroud is still likely to be the starter for the Houston franchise during the 2023 NFL season.
