Lengthy negotiations with the Denver Broncos have apparently failed, and former ASU quarterback Brock Osweiler is reportedly headed out of the Mile High City.

Osweiler has agreed to a deal with the Houston Texans, according to multiple media reports Wednesday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal is worth $72 million over four years. The Broncos had reportedly offered Osweiler a 3-year, $45 million deal.

Osweiler played in eight games for the Broncos last season in relief of injured QB Peyton Manning. He led Denver to a 5-2 record as a starter before Manning returned in the playoffs to guide the Broncos to a Super Bowl championship.

The 6-foot-7 Osweiler led ASU to a 6-7 record as a starter in 2011, his junior season in Tempe, before declaring for the NFL Draft. He was selected by the Broncos in the second round of the 2012 draft.

On Saturday, Osweiler made headlines after being attacked outside a pizza shop in Scottsdale.

Days earlier, former ASU wide receiver and current Houston Texan Jaelen Strong was arrested in Scottsdale for marijuana possession.
