Quarterback Collin Klein Walks Away From Texans' Mini Camp Unsigned

Undrafted free agent Collin Klein was originally one of the Texans most interesting picks of the 2013 campaign. Playing as a runner up in the Heisman Trophy contest a year ago, Klein stood a chance at making the Texans’ roster this season, but walked away from rookie mini-camp on Sunday empty handed.

In the end the decision came down to Gary Kubiak, who told Fox 26 that he liked what he saw out of Klein, but obviously not enough to give him a contract.

Throughout the lead up to the draft, Klein was urged to possibly switch positions to either running back, wide receiver or tight end, given his athleticism and strong footwork. Instead, Klein stayed stubborn and stuck to passing, and probably landed with the wrong team considering the Texans already have enough quarterbacks lining up for a spot on the roster.

Klein looks likely to stay true to his word and remain a quarterback. He’s on the search for another team, which normally leads to the Jets.
