The rumor mill is still churning around who the Texans will select as their starting quarterback and will it be Tony Romo or not.
Every sports outlet has Tony Romo in a Texans or Denver Broncos’ jersey already, but he is still under contract with Dallas and they’re not releasing aka cutting him.
In fact, it’s sounding like they’re going to try for a trade instead, but that’s if he continues to play the game. If Romo retires then there is another rumor that Fox Sports is trying to land him as analyst.
So, if you take Romo’s age and his extensive history of back and neck injuries, then what are the Texans’ other quarterback options?
The 2017 NFL Draft is nearing, but the Texans hold No. 25 and that makes it harder for them to land one of the top QBs in it. These three are likely to get picked fairly early and fast: Clemon’s Deshaun Watson
, UNC’s Mitch Trubisky
and Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer
But the list of the other QBs-
Robert Griffin III “RG3”
The rest of the field: Colin Kaepernick, Mark Sanchez, Aaron Murray, Chase Daniel, Josh McCown, Case Keenum, Shaun Hill, Matt McGloin, EJ Manuel, Blaine Gabbert, Geno Smith, Dan Orlovsky, Josh Johnson, Christian Ponder, Thaddeus Lewis, T.J. Yates, Kellen Moore, Ryan Nassib, David Fales, Bruce Gradkowski, Austin Davis and Charlie Whitehurst.
