There is no guaranteed money remaining for Schaub from the Texans. If he is cut his wallet does not get fatter from them. And the main point which you overlooked was that his contract & signing bonus from a new team would be a lot bigger if his last 6 games were with a 2:1 TD:INT ratio and a 92 QB rating instead of 1:2 TD:INT ratio and a 73 QB rating.
