    Though the Houston Texans have three quarterbacks under contract, they spent part of Tuesday eyeballing two more.

    Per a league source, Colt Brennan and Jarrett Brown tried out for the team on Tuesday.

    The intentions aren't clear, but it could mean that Matt Leinart or Dan Orlovsky are on shaky ground.

    The Texans also checked out four receivers: Reggie Brown, Derek Hagan, Dexter Jackson, and Demetrius Williams.

    Or someone feels that if the pass protection continues as last week, Schaub is more likely to watch upcoming games from his hospital bed.

    Maybe they are going to try and convert one of these players to a CB?

    I liked Colt Brennan from back in the day. Despite Tommy Chang breaking NCAA records before him, Brennan was a huge step up. He's a system QB with a decent deep ball... like Schaub was.

    What he really brings to the table is he would instantly become our best cover corner. :pirate:

    I was going to suggest the same idea. Maybe we're looking to trade for a corner. Teams like the 49ers could use a qb and maybe they're looking at Leinart and a wide receiver.

    The Texans work out players every week. I wonder why PFT considers it news worthy to post about it? I assume every team in the league conducts workouts on days off (or at least it would be the smart thing to do).

    Cause why would you waste your time working out QB's when we are probably one of the most stacked with talent at that position overall?

    I'm not sure if that's worth a :facepalm:

    or a

    I think I would be more interested in talking to Lester Hayes and Aaron Glenn to come out of retirement! Hell, I'm ringing Deion Sanders number!!

    We just signed Matt Leinart. It seems kind of odd that we're trying out QBs. The coaching staff must be concerned with the o-line's inability to protect the QB and also the quality of our back-ups. It seems like they don't have much faith in either Dan O. or Leinart.

    As for trying out WRs, that's plausible. We were inundated with injuries to the WR position. I don't think Andre Johnson is back to 100% yet and Jacoby Jones' injury could be worse than we thought.

    Or we did not want to waste the time of the QBs on the current roster throwing to bunches of WRs so we "tried out" a couple of QBs to act as throwing machines.

    Oh man I was so thinking we need Aaron Glenn to come out of retirement, then I could where my 31 jersey again. He'd have to talk the Piss Knocker out of it though.
