Meh. Schaub is gone. Hopefully, we get something for him. If not, so be it.

Haven't read the thread, but it seems only fitting that the team that gave him a career finally employs.

Can't wait for the Pickspatrick jokes to begin.

What can be said for Fitzpatrick is that he is indeed durable.........in his entire career, he has ended up on the injury list only 4 times!

That is a terrible contract. Why the hell would we give 4m to Fitzpatrick? What does he do that nobody else at vet minimum can do?

Not unless Fitz sees the field, because I don't expect he will unless something dire happens. This is merely the obligatory veteran-on-the-roster move after the Texans lost out on McGowen the week before.

All this means is that the keeping Matt Schuab threads can be closed for good.

That's because they either sucked or couldn't stay healthy (some had both issues) to begin with.. In almost every case they had that problem well before Fitzpatrick came to town. It's not because Fitz put some curse on them. He's just another "Jon Kitna" type journeyman QB.

O'Brian plans to start him. Draft & develop somebody but not from 1st rd. If I remember correctly he can throw a decent deep ball. I don't know, its been a strange, strange year

And this is the REAL question we should be asking ourselves!

I had to meet Rick Smith in person before I became convinced that he wasn't my wife, with all this frivolous spending, time and time again.

Default Re: Ryan Fitzpatrick visiting Texans (signs)

If I were to guess I think this means Fitzpatrick is the starter for a year or two and Clowney is chosen with the #1 pick. Meanwhile, they either draft a QB in the 2nd-4th to groom as Fitzpatrick's replacement or pick someone in 2015. I'm okay with that I think. Watt and Clowney on the d-line would be scary good.

I'm thinking he's one more starting QB for Keenum to beat out of a job. He already took Schaub's job, taking it from a second veteran QB will legitimize him as the one true Texans starter.

he got less than Cassell or Henne to perform the same role and about the same as Charlie Whitehurst who is closer to a pure back-up than he is???

Smart QB to pick up the system well, knows he isn't the long term answer so will be comfortable bringing someone along.

Default Re: Ryan Fitzpatrick visiting Texans (signs)

Assuming Schaub is not gonna be on the roster, Fitzpatrick will be the best QB on the roster. I would love for them to take Bridgewater, but I think the #1 spot is Clowney's to lose. I think as an organization the Texas pretty much know next season is a transition year and they'll take a QB next season, be it Winston, Mariota, Hundley or whoever.
If they don't take Bridgewater, the only other quarterback I would like to see them take a run at is Aaron Murray in the 3rd.
