Look, I don't want them to keep Schaub but it isn't unreasonable from the Texans' perspective (other than fan considerations).
who can schaub mentor is my first question. he's done his time with keenum and yates. a "new vet" wont need a lot of schaub. a rookie i'd assume o'brien would want to be tutored without the previous school introducing any contrary style/opinions. to that i ask, why would o'brien want schaub as a mentor?
i would absolutely love schaub as a backup. he's still a very very good quarterback. top 15 if healthy, but the foot is degenerative and as a starter would be ugly in the back half of the season, if the individual/team pressure as well as fan pressure allowed him that far. i want to keep him, but i dont see it as a mentor, it would be as a very expensive late season backup.
