Paul Gutierrez reported in an article on Saturday:
"“Schaub and (Mark) Sanchez are expected to be cut by their respective teams soon … The Raiders currently have three quarterbacks on their roster in Terrelle Pryor, Matt McGloin and Trent Edwards.”"
The Texans just need to make up their mind on Schaub, but I’m guessing that decision is coming soon.
I don’t see Schaub being a part of the Texans for much longer, plus it will be best for both to just move on after what we witnessed this past season.
Schaub unfortunately set an NFL record by throwing an interception for a touchdown in four consecutive games this past season, leading to him being benched for Case Keenum.
Schaub eventually started the final two games for the Texans due to an injury to Keenum.
In his eight starts, Schaub passed for 2,310 yards, 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions with a QB rating of 73.0.

Think about this … what if the Texans release Schaub and the Raiders release McGloin … with their history together would Texans head coach Bill O’Brien bring McGloin over to the Texans as a reserve QB, since he already had played in a version of his offensive system when they were both at Penn State.
Just a thought, plus the Texans are going to need reserve QBs on their roster. I’m not saying McGloin is going to be the starter, but having a guy who already knows the system wouldn’t hurt.
Also for the Texans they will still most likely draft a QB either in the first or second round of the 2014 NFL Draft as well.
I’m not forgetting about Keenum, as I think he’ll still be on the roster at the start of the ’14 season. As for T.J. Yates, he’ll probably be playing elsewhere when the Texans open the season.
It looks like next week could possibly be interesting once they decide what they will do with Schaub.
What do you want the Texans to do with Schaub … keep him, trade him or release him? Let us know.
