The Houston Texans are on their third or fourth quarterback for this week alone… just adding to the list of quarterbacks the team has signed since 2002.
Yesterday the Texans announced that they signed quarterback Josh Johnson and released Matt McGloin.
Johnson, 31, was last with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2013 and hasn’t thrown a pass since 2011. Since 2013, Johnson has been with the 49ers, Bengals again, NY Jets, Colts, Bills, Ravens, NY Giants and now Houston Texans. Most of the teams that Johnson was on were only for “Offseason and/or practice squad member only.”
Johnson was in the 2008 NFL Draft, 25th pick of the fifth round. During his career, Johnson has thrown five touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
During his presser the other day, head coach Bill O’Brien gave his reason for passing on Colin Kaepernick as a real potential quarterback for the Houston Texans when he said, “good football player, hasn’t played football in a while.”
During his playing days, Kaepernick threw 72 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.
Who will be the next free agent quarterback(s) that the Texans might considering signing after these don’t work out?
