After the stellar first year of quarterback C.J. Stroud, the Texans are primed for a successful future.
But if the 2023 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year wants to continue his rise, he will need a talented left tackle to keep him upright.

The franchise has that person in four-time Pro Bowler Laremy Tunsil (above), who is the league’s highest-paid protector of the quarterback with his $25 million salary for last season. Tunsil signed a three-year, $75 million contract extension with the Texans last offseason.

Second on the list is Giants left tackle Andrew Thomas at $23.5 million. Thomas signed a five-year, 117.5 million extension with the franchise last offseason.

Coming in at Nos. 3 and 4 on the list are 49ers left tackle Trent Williams and Eagles left tackle Jordan Mailata. Williams, who makes $23.01 million annually, signed a six-year deal with San Francisco in 2021 worth more than $138 million. Mailata recently signed a three-year, $66 million contract to remain with the Eagles. Mailata’s Eagle teammate, Lane Johnson, rounds out the top 5 making just under $20.2 million annually.
