Ryan Fitzpatrick Signing Adds Intrigue To Houston Texans Future QB Plans
If you had Ryan Fitzpatrick to the Houston Texans this offseason, congratulations. You were one of few who called it.
Fitzpatrick to the Texans is a little shocking, but when you really think about it, it’s not completely crazy. Matt Schaub has been on his way out of Houston for a long time now, and this will just speed up that process. Fitzpatrick now temporarily pencils in as the team’s starter, presumably while the Texans work to find a trade partner for Schaub.
There’s just no way Schaub and Fitzpatrick are both on the Houston roster come training camp time.
The main question on everyone’s mind now — what will the Texans do on draft day?
With each passing day, it’s seeming more and more likely that they won’t select a QB at No. 1. But will they take one later on? Will they trade down? The truth is that no one really knows.
Fitzpatrick could start for the Texans, but it just doesn’t seem like they’ll go in that direction. He’s basically proven himself to be a career-backup. If the Texans are done with Schaub, he’ll be a solid replacement — but that’s it. Houston has basically just replaced one decent signal-caller with another. There’s definitely more to the story.
If I had to guess right now, I’d say that they’ll trade down from the first spot and try to acquire another early round pick. They pretty much have to take a QB on draft day, but after the signing of Fitzpatrick, I’m not sold it will be in the first round.
