Jay Cutler might be the best option for the Houston Texans if they don’t sign Tony Romo.

It’s been reported that Jay Cutler would prefer to play for the Houston Texans And that he’s a plan B if they are unable to sign Tony Romo.

SportsBettingDime.com has Cutler’s odds of signing with the Texans at 3/1.  Which makes him a favorite to land in Houston.

"Cutler has said he’d like to play for the Texans, but there’s no way that could be accomplished on his current deal. Should he become a free agent, though, Cutler would be an upgrade over Brock Osweiler or Tom Savage. A quarterback that hits the occasional big play between turnovers is better than one who just throws checkdowns before he gives the ball up."

In case you’re wondering, SportsBettingDime.com has the Denver Broncos as the favorites to sign Tony Romo at 3/2 with the Texans right behind them at 5/2

"Houston also makes a lot of sense. The Texans were one of the most complete teams in football last season, but were held back by terrible quarterback play from Brock Osweiler. (Tom Savage wasn’t much better.) Of course, all the quarterback-hungry teams would love to have Romo start for them while they groom their future from the sideline. – MM"

The Texans wouldn’t have a hard time signing Cutler to a very friendly contract.

You can’t say the same about Romo.

The only way the Texans will be able to sign Romo is if he’s willing to take an incentive-laden contract that will minimize the hit on Houston’s cap.

No matter whether Romo or Cutler is the Texans’ starting quarterback next season, both players would be a huge upgrade over Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage.
