I find this hard to believe but Matt Schaub feels he’s staying with the Houston Texans according to his No. 1 wide receiver Andre Johnson in an article by Dave Zangaro of CSN Houston.

The article by CSN Houston quotes Johnson as saying:

"“I get the feeling that he feels like he’s going to be here.”"

If that happens I will be stunned to say the least. I don’t see a way where Schaub comes back unless he’s the starter of the Texans, but again, if new head coach Bill O’Brien is a great QB guru, well maybe he feels he will be able to fix whatever caused Schaub to play so badly in 2013.

I believe Schaub will be elsewhere in 2014.

In other Texans news:

• Here is an article from ESPN.com’s Tania Ganguli about the salary cap situation of the Texans.

Ganguli writes:

"“With $3,247,174 in dead money on the books, that leaves the Texans with $8,628,210 of cap space for 2014.”"

• John McClain of the Houston Chronicle wrote on their Ultimate Texans blog about some of the trade options the Texans could be interested in this offseason. One of those players being Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer.

The article said:

"“Ever since O’Brien was hired, there’s been speculation that he might try to trade for Hoyer, who played well last season before suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament.”"

Hoyer played well when he was on the field for the Browns last season, but he’s coming off an ACL tear, and do any of us really believe Hoyer can lead this team to a Super Bowl in the grand scheme of things?
