Schaub was coming off a major injury. He held no cards. If the Texans could have afforded a $60+ million deal in 2012, they certainly could have done one this offseason. Joe Flacco always had the tools and the upside. He finally played up to them in the most opportune time. Schaub was never going to become what Flacco became. He's a pretty smart system QB with zero athleticism. The market would have been the Texans and...maybe the Jets. Maybe. Schaub might have gotten a $25 million, 3 year deal. Not the $60+ million he got from the Texans.
