The Houston Texans are scrambling to add additional quarterbacks with Deshaun Watson out for the season.
With rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson out for the remainder of the season, the Houston Texans signed veteran Matt McGloin on Thursday.
I guess the Texans felt like they needed to add another veteran quarterback, because they’re also signing T.J. Yates, who of course spent time in Houston earlier in his career.
The 30 year-old Yates played with the Texans from 2011-13 as well as in 2015. He’s only completed 58.1 percent of his passes along with six touchdowns, eight touchdowns and a quarterback rating of 72.8 during his career.
Yates also spent time with the Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills.
When it comes to McGloin, he’s only 27 years-old and is very similar to Yates due to the fact that he’s also completed 58.1 percent of his passes, has thrown for 11 touchdowns, 11 interceptions with a rating of 75.3.
My guess is that McGloin will end up backing up Tom Savage, given the fact that he’s more familiar with head coach Bill O’Brien after playing under him at Penn State. I also think McGloin would be a better option if something were to happen to Savage.
It’s a shame that a team like the Texans really believes that both McGloin and Yates are better than Colin Kaepernick. This is just more proof that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback is being black balled by the NFL.
