Texans’ division rival signs Brandon Weeden
Brandon Weeden has found a new home after the Houston Texans decided to dump him over the summer.
It was a little surprising when the Houston Texans released veteran quarterback Brandon Weeden this past summer after deciding to only go with rookie Deshaun Watson and veteran Tom Savage as their only two quarterbacks going into the regular season.
Weeden was a free agent, until now.
ESPN NFL insider Field Yates reported on Tuesday that the Tennessee Titans are signing Weeden.
With Titans’ starting quarterback Marcus Mariota exiting this past Sunday’s loss to the Texans with a hamstring injury, they had to add a quarterback.
In all honesty, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would have made a lot more sense for the Titans given the fact that he’s a similar kind of quarterback to Mariota. But it’s obvious that the NFL is blackballing him.
The good news for the Titans is that he’s considered day-to-day with his injury.
Weeden is being brought in to back up Matt Cassel, who will take over if Mariota has to miss any games going forward.
The Titans currently sit tied with the Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars with a 2-2 record atop the AFC South.

While wins aren’t guaranteed in the NFL, the Titans have a pretty easy game this Sunday against a struggling Miami Dolphins team. No one knows how their offense will look if Cassel has to start in place of Mariota. So it’s up in the air whether or not they can bounce back after getting blown out by Houston.
When it comes to Weeden signing with the Titans, he likely won’t see the field. Unless Cassel struggles mightly or gets injured.
