Absolutely not. Tj is a bird in the hand, why gamble?
We've locked Schaub up for a little while. He's got at least 4 good years in him baring serious injury. What we're looking for in a back-up QB is someone who can run the offense & not lose games for us. Tj does that well & (as seen in Atlanta & vs Cincy) gives us a chance to win.
We're not looking for heir-apparent.
Besides, the NFL has a short memory. Had we tried to trade him last off-season he'd have competed with Matt Flynn & with the way that turned out, I don't know if "flashy back-up" is as hot a commodity any more.
