Jay Cutler not expected to play for the Houston Texans.

Many people–including myself–believe former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler would be a good option for the Houston Texans if they’re unable to acquire Tony Romo this offseason.

There’s good news for those of you who don’t want Cutler in Houston.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle was asked during a Facebook Live Q&A whether he thinks Cutler is a viable option for the Texans.

"“No,” replied McClain. “I don’t see Jay Cutler here. A lot of teams are trying to say it . Here’s why, Bill O’Brien is a stickler. Every time you ask him about a quarterback, leadership is strong with him. He likes players to be vocal. To demonstritive. To be vocal in meeting rooms when they’re going over game plans. But everything we know about Jay Cutler, that’s not him. Leadership and Cutler have never been used in the same sentence. And that’s why I don’t see Cutler coming here. It would be a desperate move. I know he would like to come here. He don’t want to go to a team that’s bad. He wants to come to a team that’s good. Denver’s not interested and so far the Texans haven’t been. And I don’t believe the Texans will be.”"

McClain made some great points.

As talented as Cutler is, he doesn’t have what it takes to lead a team to a Super Bowl. He did get the Bears to an NFC Championship, but that didn’t end well.

As of right now it sounds like the Texans’ starter heading into next season will be Tom Savage, Tony Romo or possibly a rookie.
