Colin Kaepernick remains the best option for the Texans.
We already know that Houston Texans have talked about signing free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
We also know that the Texans still haven’t ruled out signing him. Especially now that Tony Romo has retired.
Brad Gagnon of Bleacher Report believes the Texans will end up signing Kaepernick to a one-year, $10 million contract.
"That leaves us with the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans. Broncos general manager John Elway did chase Kaepernick last offseason, but Elway has expressed confidence in the young quarterbacks on his roster. Meanwhile, even if the Texans use their No. 25 overall pick on a quarterback, that prospect will be a long-term project. They could easily come to the conclusion this spring or summer that Kaepernick gives them a better chance to win than that rookie or current projected starter Tom Savage."
I agree with Gagnon. Kaepernick gives the Texans the best chance to win and if they don’t believe they, they’re fooling themselves.
Kaepernick needs to realize that his asking may be too much. As of right now we don’t know what that price is, but there’s a reason he’s still a free agent and I don’t think it’s all about the baggage that he brings to the table.

With Texans currently having $30 million in cap space, they could certainly afford to sign Kaepernick to a one-year $10 million deal like Gagnon predicts.
