    I think its worth discussing who might be available for the Texans in 2014 if we decide to pass on a QB and address other needs.

    Am I the only one who feels dirty considering Vick? I know he has a horrible past, and hes 33 (34 by the time training camp starts) but I cant help from thinking he is the best of this motley crew.

    I think Henne will get resigned by jville and Josh McCown should be available if we want to go that route. He looked good throwing to Marshall and Jeffery.

    Michael Vick QB UFA PHI TBD 33 $12,200,000
    Chad Henne QB UFA JAC TBD 28 $4,150,000
    Matt Cassel QB UFA MIN TBD 31 $3,700,000
    Shaun Hill QB UFA DET TBD 33 $3,250,000
    Josh Freeman QB UFA MIN TBD 25 $2,000,001
    Ch. Whitehurst QB UFA SD TBD 31 $1,800,000
    Colt McCoy QB UFA SF TBD 27 $1,445,625
    Jimmy Clausen QB UFA CAR TBD 26 $952,500
    Tarvaris Jackson QB UFA SEA TBD 30 $840,000
    Curtis Painter QB UFA NYG TBD 28 $630,000
    Dan Orlovsky QB UFA TB TBD 30 $620,000
    David Garrard QB UFA NYJ TBD 35 $588,235
    Kellen Clemens QB UFA STL TBD 30 $585,000
    Josh McCown QB UFA CHI TBD 34 $580,000
    Rex Grossman QB UFA WAS TBD 33 $575,000
    Derek Anderson QB UFA CAR TBD 30 $555,000
    Luke McCown QB UFA NO TBD 32 $555,000
    Rusty Smith QB UFA TEN TBD 26 $481,764
    Pat Devlin QB ERFA MIA TBD 25 $480,000
    Seneca Wallace QB UFA GB TBD 33 $457,412

    Isn't this already in another thread?

    I don't want Vick. I don't think he'd make a good mentor and I don't want to have to root for him. The Eagles were my second team for a long time but I stopped rooting for them when he became their QB.

    Cassel knows the system and has worked with BOB before. If I were going to be looking for someone to bring in as my Matt Hasselbeck for Luck, he'd be the guy.

    The only name I like on that list is Henne.

    If we draft a guy who needs half a year to sit (I hope we don't), Henne can get by and then provide a really god back up QB presence.

    I think you're dirty for thinking passing on a QB is an option.

    I'd be happy with anyone of those to compete with our rookie QB for the starting job. If Vick doesn't feel like he needs to compete with a rookie, scratch him off the list.

    Let's sign three of these bums (whoever, really doesn't make any difference) and trade down our #1 draft pick and use half the draft on defensive linemen and the other half on offensive linemen. Gotta build those trenches.

    I wouldn't touch anybody on that list with your ****,

    But if OB does it would be Cassel I'd think.

    Possibilities:

    Vick (if we draft a mobile QB)
    Henne (still shows flashes)
    Cassel (system guy)
    J. McCown (older, but from Texas and played at SMU and SHS ... may have a couple years left)
    Whitehurst (had potential, not sure whats left)
    Clausen (if he has progressed and just not seen the field because of Newton)
    Simms (looked decent last year in a couple games with Jets)
    Freeman (wildcard, may be back to what everyone thought he could be or may just have imploded)

    Only one I see that might still have upside at this point is Freeman honestly.

    What an awful list. I may give Colt McCoy a look to see if there's anything there that playing in Cleveland didn't ruin.
