Texans thinking about signing Colin Kaepernick or Jay Cutler, per report

Signing either Colin Kaepernick or Jay Cutler makes sense for the Houston Texans.

The Texans were dealt a tough blow on Tuesday when Tony Romo announced that he will retire from the NFL and work for CBS as a broadcaster rather than continue his NFL career.

What makes things worse is that Romo admitted that the Texans were on top of his list of places he wanted to play.

Now Houston has to regroup and think about where they go from here.

Patrick Starr of State of the Texans is reporting that the Texans are considering their options at the quarterback position and there is a chance they could end up deciding to sign either Colin Kaepernick or Jay Cutler.

"That next step is to determine whether either Colin Kaepernick or Jay Cutler are potential fits for the organization. Despite what is being said on the outside, the Texans are working to find out if either quarterback could take the team in the direction in which they want to go . At the current time, no quarterback is off the table, according to a source close to the situation."

I wrote yesterday that the Texans have to either sign Kaepernick or Cutler.  They are foolish to think that both Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden are better options.

The Texans are ready to make a Super Bowl run. I know Kaepernick and Cutler aren’t great, but let’s be honest, they’re good enough with all the talent the Texans have.

Cutler was able to lead the Chicago Bears to an NFC Championship and Kaepernick helped the San Francisco 49ers come within one play of winning a Super Bowl.

Comment below and let me know what you think the Texans should do.
