3. Brandon Weeden, QB
Being that he is 35 years old and the fact that the Houston Texans saw the type of hits their franchise starting quarterback Deshaun Watson took this past season with 60-plus sacks, there is no way the Texans bring back Brandon Weeden again as the “Plan B” for their quarterbacks.
Weeden seems like a good enough guy, but as a quarterback, if Watson would go down with all the hits he’s taken in his first two NFL seasons, I just don’t see the Texans being a threat with Weeden being the next quarterback in line for the franchise.

Even if Weeden knows the offensive system of Bill O’Brien and the Texans, they have to move on and let Weeden fly away to be a backup quarterback elsewhere with another franchise.
One free agent the Texans could look to is Teddy Bridgewater, as he last was a backup for the New Orleans Saints, and there is also Tyrod Taylor and Geno Smith, all of whom are 30 or under and could be a fit at backup quarterback for the team.
Other than Bridgewater, the other two listed to be a possible backup quarterback aren’t the greatest of options, either.
The Texans will have to really look closely at the free agent market of backup quarterbacks and really look for a diamond in the rough, but I don’t see Weeden back in 2019.
