With the new CBA the contract is for four years and this is the last year of that period. BUT, the team has an option for a fifth year. Then there is the option of franchise tags. So:

2014 - rookie contract
2015 - team option extension
2016 - franchise

The Texans have the leverage. If they can get him to sign long term at something reasonable then great but if JJ demands a contract like some around here project then it makes no sense for the Texans to not play out their hand and leave the risk on JJ.
