The Houston Texans need to swallow their pride and sign free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick if they want to have a chance at making the playoffs.

I mentioned this past week that the Houston Texans should think about signing free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick, given the fact that he has a similar skill set to Deshaun Watson.

It looks like the Texans might be taking my advice.

FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer reported on Sunday that the Texans are talking about possibly signing Kaepernick.

The Texans may want to get Kaepernick on the phone on Monday, with current starter Tom Savage only completing 8 of 26 passes for 81 yards. Houston is currently losing the Indianapolis Colts.

Now I don’t believe Kaepernick is as good as Watson, but he’ll give them a much better chance of winning football games than any of the current quarterbacks on the Texans’ current roster. Matt McGloin and T.J. Yates are not going to save the day.

If Houston doesn’t make a move for Kaepernick, they may as well just forfeit the rest of their games. Losing to a lowly Colts team is not acceptable.

With Kaepernick filing a grievance against the NFL for alleged collusion, the Texans could decide to stay away from signing him. It all comes down to how much they want to win. Owner Bob McNair was just asked to turn over his phone and email records due to the grievance, so I’m not sure he would be on board with signing Kaepernick.
