After being the odd man out in the quarterback competition last season, Brandon Weeden spent his 2017 season behind Marcus Mariota with the Tennessee Titans.
Weeden remains undefeated as a starter in a Texans uniform in the two games he started back in 2015. He had 3 touchdowns, 61.9% completion rate, and a 107.7 quarterback rating.
Weeden passes the numbers test in a small sample size, however, the fact that he hasn’t played a regular season game in two years is worrisome. His inability to gain separation in previous quarterback competitions shouldn’t be cast aside.
He’s always had an impressive arm to throw the football, but his biggest value for making the Texans roster is that he knows his role within the quarterback room and understands the offense the Texans are trying to run.
Weeden is probably the favorite to be the primary backup, and he’s not a bad arm and talent to have in the stable.
