I’m not sure why trading Tom Savage is a good thing for the Houston Texans sign Tony Romo.

This is very interesting.

A rumor has surfaced from Tony Pauline of that the Texans could trade quarterback Tom Savage to the San Francisco 49ers if they end up signing Tony Romo.

"Many I’ve spoken with don’t believe Tony Romo will end up with the Houston Texans as rumored, but if it happens they feel a trade will then send Tom Savage to the San Francisco 49ers."

I can’t imagine that the 49ers’ interest in Savage would be for him to come in and be their starting quarterback next season. It would likely be as a back up.

Savage has been very inconsistent during his time with the Texans and no one really knows what he can do as a full-time starter.

Even if Houston traded Savage, they likely won’t get more than a sixth or seventh round pick in return. I’m not sure it would be worth it for them. It’s not like Tony Romo is going to be an option for more than a couple of years with his career winding down.

There are also reports that the 49ers are interested in Brian Hoyer. So the Savage to San Francisco rumor is just one of many option for the Niners.

We will soon find out if Savage is headed to the Bay Area with Tony Romo expected to be released on Thursday he’ll likely choose between the Texans and Broncos soon after.
