Noah Brown is staying in Texas, but not in Dallas.
The former Ohio State wide receiver agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Houston Texans on Tuesday, the second day of the NFL’s free agency negotiation period, according to multiple reports.
Per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the deal includes $2.25 million in guaranteed money and could be worth up to $3.1 million with incentives.

Brown is coming off his most productive season as a pro as he caught 43 passes for 555 yards and three touchdowns as a starting wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys in 2022. In his first five years in the league, Brown played primarily on special teams and caught just 39 total passes for 425 yards and zero touchdowns.
Brown had spent his entire NFL career with the Cowboys, who selected him in the seventh round of the 2017 draft. He joins a Texans roster that includes two other former Ohio State players: punter Cameron Johnston and cornerback Kendall Sheffield.
He becomes the third former Ohio State player to agree to a deal with a new team since the NFL free agency negotiation window started Monday. Dre’Mont Jones agreed to a three-year, $51 million deal with the Seattle Seahawks on Monday while Vonn Bell agreed to a three-year, $22.5 million deal with the Carolina Panthers on Monday.
