He is slated to earn around $7 million a season which is almost half of what Mathieu is expected to earn after signing a three-year deal worth up to $42 million.

The Texans attempted to keep their own star free agent safety on the roster, but ultimaltely lost Tyrann Mathieu to the Chiefs on what amounts to three-year, $42 million deal.

Mathieu can't officially sign until the league year begins on Wednesday, but he can negotiate with teams.

Thomas, who has been seeking a trade or extension from Seattle over the past year, is one of the last marquee free agents safeties available although he's been reported to be seeking the most money.

Signing Gipson at such a team friendly deal compared to the deals other safeties were getting in the first wave of free agency is an impressive addition for Gaine and the Texans front office.

He signed a $7 million deal with Houston last season and wound up starting all 16 games.

The NFL Network's Ian Rappoport is also reporting about the impeding free agent deal, saying Mathieu was their top target.

Mathieu, 26, spent last season with the Houston Texans and his first five years with the Arizona Cardinals, making a Pro Bowl in 2015.

He owns 13 interceptions in his six-year career and has scored one defensive touchdown.
