Houston Texans No. 3: Signing Tyrod Taylor to the quarterback roster

Knowing Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson didn’t want to be with the franchise this season, the franchise went out and signed quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who has been maybe the best addition to the team.

Taylor might even save the season for the Texans because without him, who knows what the Texans’ quarterback situation would look like?

Though Watson is still on team, he’s not played in the preseason, and he’s not been a part of any practice when it comes to being an actual quarterback or of any importance in the offense.

The reason Taylor have been such a great addition to the Texans is he has experience as a starting quarterback, and with how the situation gone with this team in the offseason, he’s a bit of fresh air to an offseason that was gloomy at times.

Taylor isn’t the caliber of quarterback of Watson, but he does bring leadership, experience and athleticism to an offense that needed it this season. Taylor brings a sense of comfort as the starting quarterback to begin the season, which might be his best trait for the team entering Week 1.
