In yet another report by NFL.com, they are reporting on Monday evening that the Houston Texans are in “no hurry” to part ways with Matt Schaub via releasing him.
The NFL.com article states:
"“Two teams interested in Schaub, per Rapoport, are the Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders. Both organizations have the salary-cap space to absorb Schaub’s $14.5 million cap figure.”"
I like the idea of the Texans keeping Schaub for trade purposes, but I really hope they eventually get something settled with a trade of Schaub.
Like I’ve written before, the Texans will probably get a late-round pick for Schaub, but if they could possibly gain a younger QB in the trade, that would be better than a draft pick.
Two players who could possibly be in a trade deal, and I’m just tossing out a guess, are Browns QB Brian Hoyer and Raiders QB Matt McGloin. The only reason I say that is because they both have ties to Texans head coach Bill O’Brien.
I’m not saying by any means that could happen, but as I’ve written before, it would be a good deal for either team to make a deal with the Texans as they would get a QB who can start in the NFL now. The problem with Schaub is there probably is no way he could ever start for the Texans after what the team went through last season.
What are your thoughts? What should the Texans get in a trade for Schaub from either the Browns, Raiders or maybe another team in need of a QB?
